Vipers Make a Deal 

January 10, 2019

Vernon, BC:  Ahead of the 3pm BCHL Trade Deadline, the Vernon Vipers have made a deal.

The Vipers have sent 20 year old Defenceman Mitch Andres to the Chilliwack Chiefs in exchange for 18 year old Defenceman Will Dow Kenny.  The 18 year old from Abbotsford was originally traded by the Vipers in the off season in exchange for Carver Watson.  He has 1 goal and 7 points in 34 games with the Chiefs.

“Its always tough to make a trade.  In this case Mitch Andres was a warrior for us and was a big piece to our blue line,”  says Head Coach and GM of the Vipers, Mark Ferner.  “We know what we’re getting in Will and we know that Mitch is going to a great organization in Chilliwack.”

I like this trade. The Vipers move out a veteran 20 yr old for a young 18 yr old who will be back next year. I thought Mitch Andres struggled this season at times and hasn't played well defensively in his own end. I thought he was more consistent and more reliable last year. The Vipers recruited Will Dow-Kenny. Dow-Kenny played in two or three games as an "AP" last year with the Snakes. I was really looking forward to seeing him play with the Vipers this year before he was traded to Chilliwack in August. I'm glad he's back and look forward to seeing him play with the Vipers. I wonder if he will be in the lineup tomorrow night?
