Vees trade for defenceman

The Penticton Vees have announced the acquisition of defenceman Ethan Martini from the Powell River Kings in exchange for future considerations.

Martini, 19, brings experience and grit to the Vees backend, spending the last three seasons in the BCHL and amassing 143 games between two different teams. 

The 6’6”, 209-pound defender played the majority of those games with the Trail Smoke Eaters, registering a goal and 10 assists for 11 points in 114 games while amassing 211 penalty minutes in that span.

“Adding Ethan’s experience, size and physical mentality was something we couldn’t pass up on,” commented Vees Head Coach, General Manager and President Fred Harbinson.

“We all know the grind in which the Interior Division has become and I look forward to helping Ethan take the next step with his game.”
