MERRITT, B.C. – The Merritt Centennials are excited to announce the commitment of Rhett Miller for next season. Rhett hails from Olds, Alberta and has spent the last few seasons playing between the Okanagan Hockey Academy, Red Deers Alberta’s AAA midget programs, and the Grande Prairie Storm in the AJHL.
“Rhett is a player that we identified to come in and fit our style here in Merritt. He is hard on pucks, fearless and skilled. He was a line-mate of Diego Johnson’s last season in midget, sometimes players can be your best resources for recruiting, and Rhett ended up being a no-brainer for us for next season,” said Head Coach & GM Curtis Toneff.
“I am super excited to become part of a small, tight-knit community like Merritt. Being a part of such a historical franchise is something I have dreamed of since I was a young child. I cannot wait to devote myself to this organization and make the necessary sacrifices to help this team succeed in the best junior A league in Canada. I want to bring excitement to the fans with my play on the ice, all while becoming a part of the community off the ice.”
The Centennials would like to welcome Rhett and his family to the organization!
