Ex-Warrior signs NHL deal

Former West Kelowna Warrior David Pope has signed a two-year entry-level contract with the NHL's Detroit Red Wings.

The 24-year-old forward inked the deal on Monday. 

Pope played three seasons in the BCHL (2011-2014), with the Cowichan Valley Capitals and the Warriors.

He was traded midway through the 2011 season to West Kelowna and became an offensive threat for the Warriors.

The six-foot-three, 200-pound forward tallied 50 goals and 57 assists for 107 points in 107 games with the Warriors, along with 59 penalty minutes. 

The Edmonton native's best season was his final one in the BCHL, scoring 27 goals for the Warriors in 2013-14 and 23 assists. He was also a BCHL second team all-star. 

Pope then played for the University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks, amassing 45 goals and 49 assists over four years.

In 2017-18, he led the Mavericks in scoring and was also nominated for the prestigious Hobey Baker Award while also being selected to the National Collegiate Hockey Conference’s first all-star team.
