Vees sign NCAA defenceman Michael Campoli

Penticton, BC: The Penticton Vees are pleased to announce the signing of 1998-born defenceman Michael Campoli. He spent the last year and a half at Boston College, appearing in 12 games for the Eagles while registering one assist.

Campoli, a dual citizen but originally from Montreal, went to Boston College from the United States National Under-18 Program,  playing 55 games during the 2015-16 season recording one assist.

He has also represented the United States on the International stage, winning a silver medal at the Under-17 Hockey Championships in the 2014-15 season. Prior to his freshman year at Boston College, Campoli was invited to Buffalo Sabres prospects camp.

“Michael Campoli is a great skating defenceman that is known for his defensive game,” said Vees head coach and general manager Fred Harbinson. “We’ve seen how players such as Scott Conway and Nick Jones in the past that have come back from the NCAA and had a positive impact on our program. We feel Michael will add the same to our defence core.”

The 6’3’’ defender will come to Penticton in the new year and will join the team in 2018.

Vees fans can receive a special rate on tickets for the teams next two games in Wenatchee against the Wild on December 29 and 30. For more information, contact Laura Carleton at 250-493-8337 ext. 4.
