Vees Grab Nitsche from Langley
Saturday, December 29, 2012 - Submitted by Fraser Rodgers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Saturday, December 29, 2012
VEES BOLSTER THEIR BLUE-LINE
 
PENTICTON, BC–The Penticton Vees Jr. ‘A’ Hockey Club has acquired defenseman Thomas Nitsche (92) from the Langley for future considerations.
 
To make room for Nitsche, the Vees sent rookie defenseman Nathan Deyell (95) to the Cowichan Valley Capitals for future considerations.
 
Vees Head Coach & GM Fred Harbinson says Nitsche is the type of player needed to win games when they matter,“As we get ready for the stretch drive we realize that our division once again will be battle every night to get through. Thomas brings a veteran physical presence that you cannot have enough of come playoff time.”
 
Nitsche, 20, was in his second season with the Rivermen and his first as Langley’s captain. In 27 games, Nitsche tallied one goal and seven points to go along with 45 penalty-minutes. In 82 career games with the Rivermen, the Charlotte, North Carolina native has amassed five goals and 26 points. Nitsche is known more for his play without the puck, as the stay-at-home defenseman brings size to the Vees blue-line, standing at 6’3 and weighing in at 203 pounds.
 
Prior to joining the Langley Rivermen, Nitsche spent one season of Midget hockey with the Dallas Jets Under-18 program and before that came up through the Charlotte Jr. Checkers minor hockey program.
 
Nitsche is committed to Colgate University Raiders for next fall and will make his Vees debut tonight when they face the West Kelowna Warriors; Nitsche will wear number three.
 
Deyell, 17, was in his first season in the BCHL and with the Vees. The Vancouver native was held pointless in 22 games this season playing in a depth roll on the Vees blue-line.  Prior to Penticton, Deyell played with the Oceanside Generals of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League (VIJHL), where he picked up three goals and 14 points in 38 games in 2011-2012.
 
The Vees now have five 20 year-olds on their roster after the trade, one under the BCHL maximum of six.
The Vees organization would like to thank Nathan for his contributions to the team and wish him all the best in his future with the Cowichan Valley Capitals. The Vees would also like to welcome Thomas to the organization and the South Okanagan.
