The Okanagan Rockets are pleased to announce the addition of 1998 born forward Marcus Mitchell to their roster for the 2014-2015 season.
The 6’1”, 170 pound Mitchell spent the 2013-2014 season with the Pursuit of Excellence Elite 15 team. In 37 games, Mitchell tallied 11 goals and 23 assists for 34 points. Mitchell also dressed in 4 games for the U18 Midget Prep team where he chipped in with 1... goal and 1 assist in 4 games.
“In Marcus, we are adding a forward that we feel can be very versatile for us. We feel he has a bit of an untapped offensive side, and we expect him to come into our program produce some offence, while still displaying his trademark grit.” said Rockets general manager David Michaud.
Mitchell's Western Hockey League rights belong to the hometown Kelowna Rockets as they listed him to their 50 player protected list this summer.
Marcus and the rest of the defending BC Major Midget League Champions will next take to the ice during the Annual Ice Breaker Event at the Capital News Centre from September 5-7th.
