Two players added to roster

The Clippers will keep tinkering to try to find a winning combination.

Nanaimo’s B.C. Hockey League team made a couple of roster moves over the weekend, adding defenceman Mike Dopko and forward Brodie Jamieson. Dopko, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound defenceman was a cash transfer from Manitoba’s Neepawa Natives. The 20-year-old joined the team Friday and played that night for his new team in a 1-1 tie with the Powell River Kings.

“Dopko was real solid, real strong, played an exceptional game for us,” said Bestwick. “I was really happy with his performance after arriving that day.”

On Saturday there was another new face in the locker room as Brodie Jamieson got in the lineup at Alberni. Jamieson, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound forward was released by the Surrey Eagles and the Clips scooped him up. The 18-year-old played all of last season with the Burnaby Express, scoring five goals and adding nine assists and 35 penalty minutes over 57 games.

ICE CHIPS … The Clippers had only 15 skaters in Saturday’s game against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, as injured forwards Kyle Kramer and Tristan Lowenberger dressed for the game but never got on the ice.
