Walleye add pair of skaters to roster

THUNDER BAY, Ont. — The fledgling Kam River Fighting Walleye have added a pair of players to their inaugural Superior International Junior Hockey League roster for the 2020-21 season.

The club has announced that they have signed 2000-born Trent Keewatin of Martensville, Sask., who plays both forward and defence, as well as veteran forward Talon Thomas, who hails from Duck Lake, Sask.

Both skaters saw action in the Western States Hockey League last season.

Keewatin suited up for 21 games in the WSHL while the towering six-foot-six-inch Thomas appeared in 34 WSHL match-ups and also appeared in 45 outings in Manitoba Junior Hockey League previously, with the OCN Blizzard.

“Trent brings size, toughness and versatility to the team. We expect him to be a solid player for us,” said Walleye general manager Kevin McCallum.

Meanwhile, Kam River head coach Matt Valley offered some insight on Thomas.

“I am excited to see what Talon will bring to the club,” stated the Walleye bench boss.

“With his size and experience, we expect big things this season.”
