Buccaneers filling up roster

The Nanaimo Buccaneers have more hands on deck after announcing six new signings this month.

The city’s junior B Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League club announced that Rowan Siider, Trent Bell, Nik Malenica, Owen Dalman, Nolan Richardson and Liam Craig will be part of the team in 2014-15.

Siider, Bell and Malenica are former North Island Silvertips major midget players. Siider is a stay-at-home defenceman, Bell is a feisty forward and Malenica is more of a power forward. Dalman and Richardson played last season for the Nanaimo midget Tier 1 team and Craig played midget in Cowichan. Dalman plays a fast, aggressive style up front, Richardson has potential to be a scorer and coaches like Craig’s work ethic.

The Buccaneers, with new coach Derek Bachynski, will hold main camp Aug. 15-17 at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The season starts in September.
