WENATCHEE, Wash. – The Wenatchee Wild, proud members of the British Columbia Hockey League, have announced that Nathan Deyell has signed, as the team prepares for its first season in the BCHL.
Deyell is a 6’3”, 200 pound defenseman from Vancouver, British Columbia, who played for the Drayton Valley Thunder of the Alberta Junior Hockey League the past two seasons, netting 3 goals, 10 assists and 46 penalty minutes in 81 games. He has also spent time with Dauphin of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League and has BCHL experience with Nanaimo, Penticton and Cowichan Valley.
According to Wenatchee Wild Head Coach/General Manager Bliss Littler, “Nathan has a lot of experience to go with a 6’3” frame. He skates well for a big guy and will be looked at for some veteran leadership on the point.”
“I’m excited for the opportunity to be part of the Wild for their inaugural BCHL season” said Deyell. “Wenatchee is going to become the place to play Junior A Hockey and I am happy to be able to spend my final year of junior eligibility here.”
The Wenatchee Wild open the BCHL regular season with a pair of games at the Prince George Spruce Kings on September 11th and 12th. The home opener will be on October 10th against the Coquitlam Express. Season tickets for all 28 home games are available at the Wild office in the Town Toyota Center, or by calling 509-888-7825.
