With only two defenceman listed on their current roster (Mitchell Oliver & Mac Ferner) you knew Mark Ferner wasnt going to rely on all young prospects on the backend. I figured he may try and bring in a veteran d-man or two before the season starts. I remember the name "Bo Pellah" but with him playing for Langley & Alberni Valley I dont remember watching him play as both teams only come here once a season, its hard to remember certain players from the Coast & Island teams when they only play here once. I do remember hearing alot of talk of him when he was a rookie. The Vipers will be his 9th team in five years, WOW!! Whats up with that? If this kid is so good, why nine teams in five years? It sounds like Pellah is a solid puck moving defenceman that can skate and is good with the puck. Adding a veteran 20 yr old d-man to your roster, will help as the Vipers now have just three defenceman that played Junior hockey last year. Looking forward to catching Pellah at the Vipers Training Camp and seeing what he can do.
