Team trades high-energy centre

The Nanaimo Clippers traded centre Brodie Jamieson to the Langley Rivermen on Tuesday in exchange for Mason Blacklock.

The Nanaimo Clippers will get a chance to see, right away, how their latest trade starts to pan out.

The Clips traded veteran centre Brodie Jamieson to the Langley Rivermen on Tuesday in exchange for forward Mason Blacklock. It is expected both players will be the lineup when the two teams meet Friday (Oct. 21) at Frank Crane Arena.

“Both players will be, I would suppose, emotionally charged for the game and hopefully both players play well,” said Mike Vandekamp, Clippers general manager.

The GM said the Clippers appreciate the efforts of the 19-year-old Jamieson, calling him a good kid and a hard worker. He played 48 games with the Clips last season, tallying seven goals, 18 assists and 41 penalty minutes.

“We were having trouble finding a good spot for him in our lineup where he was going to be comfortable,” Vandekamp said. “Maybe he’ll find a role that he can fit into better, maybe, with their club.”

Blacklock is a 17-year-old who can play either centre or the wing, and is bigger at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds. He had two goals and three assists in 37 games last season with the Langley Chiefs.

“We’ll find him a home in our lineup here and let him run with it and hopefully he’ll develop into a good player,” Vandekamp said.

GAME ON … The Clippers and Rivermen face off Friday (Oct. 21) at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena.
