Penticton, BC: The Penticton Vees announced today they have acquired 2000-born forward Vincent Nardone from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s Flin Flon Bombers in a three-team deal that sees 1999-born forward Cassidy Bowes moved to the AJHL’s Whitecourt Wolverines.
Nardone, from Rosemère, Quebec, was in his first season of junior hockey with the Bombers last season, scoring 17 goals and adding 22 assists in 56 games. His 39 points tied for third amongst SJHL rookies.
The 5’10’’ forward enjoyed a 10-game point streak from October 11 to November 10, and a nine-game streak from December 31 to January 19.
He comes to Penticton with a commitment to the University of Nebraska-Omaha, where he will be team-mates with Vees alum Taylor Ward and current Vees forward Lukas Sillinger.
Bowes recorded seven goals and 17 assists last season and was a member of the 2017 Fred Page Cup championship. The Vees would like to thank him for his contributions and wish him he best moving forward.
Nardone will arrive in Penticton for training camp in mid-August.
