Oilers Acquire Goaltender Fordyce

Posted June 25th, 2014

The Okotoks Oilers are pleased to announce the acquisition of 20-year old goaltender Devon Fordyce.  Fordyce is from Cochrane, AB and has played his previous three seasons with the Prince George Cougars of the WHL, Brooks Bandits of the AJHL and most recently with the Surrey Eagles of the BCHL,   With the Bandits, Fordyce posted a 10-2-1 record with a 1.61 Goals against average and .933 Save percentage.  Last season, Fordyce had an 14-12-1 record with a 3.35 Goals against average and .895 save percentage on a rebuilding Eagles team.

“Devon brings the Oilers a quality experienced goaltender who was part of the National Championship team in Brooks two seasons ago.  Paired along with a very talented young goalie we feel we have solidified the goalie position for this upcoming season.”

The Oilers organization would like to welcome Devon and look forward to his contributions in the upcoming season.

I dont understand this trade. Why did the Vipers acquire Fordyce from Surrey if they were going to trade him before the season even starts? Why not try and land a player that you can use for this season?
