Powell River, BC – The Powell River Kings have acquired ’02 born defenceman Jordan Hendry from the Trail Smoke Eaters for ’99 born goaltender Matteo Paler-Chow.
Hendry, 17, joins the Kings after playing 16-games (0G/2A) with the Smoke Eaters this season. The Surrey, BC native played for the Valley West Giants (BCMML) for two previous seasons, scoring eight goals in 80 career games.
Paler-Chow, 20, played in 50 games over parts of three seasons with the Kings. The Vancouver, BC native took the Kings to the BCHL Semi-Finals in 2017/18, posting a 2.43 GAA and a 0.925 SV%.
“Moving Matteo (Paler-Chow) is great as Trail has a great program,” said Kings Head Coach Tyler Kuntz. “He’s going to get the opportunity to mentor a good young goalie, while also coming in as a guy who can be reliable for them down the stretch.”
The Powell River Kings would like to thank Matteo Paler-Chow for all of his hard work and dedication to the Kings organization.
“I like Matteo (Paler-Chow) and I love the Paler-Chow family,” added Kuntz. “He’s a great young man, and he did a great job for the Powell River Kings while he was here.”
