Warriors add defenceman

The West Kelowna Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is pleased to announce the commitment of defenceman Nick Ardanaz for the 2019-2020 season.  

Ardanaz, 16, spent the past four seasons with the Delta Wild Academy of the Canadian Sport School Hockey League.

He was able to register almost one point per game this past season, making him a highly sought-after BCHL player.

“We are very excited to announce Nick’s commitment to our program”, said Warriors head coach and general manager Brandon West. “Nick is a dynamic playmaking defenseman that plays strong defence as well. He’s been a key factor in the power play at Delta Academy for a few seasons and I look forward to seeing him develop here as a Warrior.”

“Seeing myself in a Warriors jerseys felt right for my family and I”, said Ardanaz. “With the coaching, great facilities, location and team history, I felt like it was the most comfortable fit for me to develop as a player and person.”

The Langley native recently committed to the University of New Hampshire for 2021-2022. With the Warriors, he will be playing alongside friend and former Delta teammate John Evans, another 2019-2020 add to the team.

“John and I have played with each other for as long as I remember," said Ardanaz. “It will be great to play out our first years of junior together on the same team. John’s a great player and a better teammate.”

Ardanaz likes to consider himself a two-way defender with an offensive touch.

 “I try to model my game after Torey Krug. You can expect an offensive minded puck moving defender who can play a two way game. I’m not afraid to jump in and create opportunities.”
