Kelowna Rockets president and general manager Bruce Hamilton announced today that the Rockets have reassigned goaltender James Porter to the Vernon Vipers of the BCHL.
“We feel there’s an opportunity in Vernon for James to get some games in,” said Hamilton. “It’s critical right now as he hasn’t had any playing time here, the most important thing for James is to get him playing.”
The Rockets drafted Porter during the seventh round of 2014 Bantam Draft. He has suited up in 73 games for Kelowna over the last two seasons, collecting a record of 30-22-7-2 with 3.29 GAA and a .897 SAV%
