Penticton, BC: The Penticton Vees are excited to announce 2000-born defenceman Conner Hutchison will return to the Vees for the 2019-20 season.
Hutchison, from Hicksville, New York, was a rookie last season with the Vees scoring two goals and adding eight assists in 22 games. His season was cut short due to an injury suffered November 10 against the Trail Smoke Eaters.
The injury came at a frustrating time for Hutchison as he was just starting to round into form in his first BCHL season. He recorded nine points in the 13 games leading up to the injury.
The puck-moving defenceman is committed to the University of Vermont upon the completion of his junior career.
