The Merritt Centennials announced today that 19-year-old forward Alex Bourhas has been traded to the Nepean Raiders of the Central Canada Hockey League for future considerations.
“With Chase Bell coming off injured reserve, we needed to make room on our roster for a forward,” said Cents GM and Head Coach Joe Martin. “I’m certain that Alex will do very well with the opportunity in Nepean. Our entire organization wishes him all the best and thank him for his time in the Nicola Valley.”
Bourhas played 17 career BCHL games in Merritt, posting five points (three goals, two assists) and 14 penalty minutes. The L’Île-Bizard, QC native was recruited by the Centennials from The Hotchkiss School hockey team in Lakeville, Connecticut.
