The Lethbridge Hurricanes announced Thursday they have reassigned Center Ryan Vandervlis to the Red Deer Optimist Chiefs of the Alberta Midget AAA Hockey League.
Vandervlis, a native of Red Deer, played in one regular season game after playing all six games of the Hurricanes preseason. He scored one goal in the preseason in a 5-3 loss to the Calgary Hitmen on September 5th.
The 6’2, 193 pound Centre played with the Minor Midget AAA Chiefs last season where he registered 26 points, including 14 goals, in 37 games.
The Hurricanes have 28 players on their roster with 17 forwards, 9 defencemen and 2 goalies. The team remains with 4 overagers – Nick Walters, Riley Sheen, Tyler Bell and Zane Jones who was acquired from the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a 4th round Bantam pick in 2015 on Wednesday.
