West Kelowna has added depth on the blue-line, by acquiring Spencer Morse from the Vernon Vipers.

The 18 year-old had played four games to start the season with the Vipers, after spending the previous year with the WHL’s Moose Jaw Warriors.

“We wanted to add another defenceman” says Head Coach / GM Rylan Ferster, who has added more experience throughout his roster since the training camp.

As well as #1 goaltender Andy Desautels, Ferster has brought in forwards Tyson Dallman and Jason Cotton, all of whom have proven key contributors already.

Morse, a Calgary native, will be the first addition to the defensive corps.  But Ferster points out, the team also has 20 year-old Jaden Schmeisser soon to return from injury.

Ferster says Morse will begin practicing with the Warriors on Thursday, while Schmeisser could make his debut when the club heads on a Coastal road trip next weekend (Oct. 4, 5, 6).
