The senior A Nanaimo Timbermen announced that they have added a physical defender to the mix for the upcoming season.

Tanner Theede of Whitby, Ont., 6-foot-3, 230 pounds, has 208 penalty minutes in 33 career games.

“Tanner will make it very uncomfortable for opposing forwards to cut through the middle and his teammates always play a few inches taller when he is on the floor,” said Chris Bowman, T-men president, in a press release.
