The Bonnyville Pontiacs have acquired Adam Grenier (’03) from the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) in exchange for veteran forward Roc Truman (’01).
Grenier is an up-and-coming young talent who played 17 games during the pandemic interrupted BCHL season in 2020-21 with the Capitals and earned three assists.
“Adam [Grenier] is a dynamic player who has the potential to be a gamechanger,” said Pontiacs Coach and General Manager Rick Swan. “He plays a 200 foot game and has a high-end compete level, which we hope will translate to being a great Bonnyville Pontiac.”
Roc Truman played 14 regular season games putting up six assists with the Yaks after being acquired in early 2020 from the Drumheller Dragons. He is currently committed to UMass-Lowell when his junior career ends.
“We wanted to make sure that we put Roc in a great situation as a 20-year-old. We believe that Cowichan has given him a great opportunity to do so this season.”
The Bonnyville Pontiacs wish Roc and the Truman family all the best as his career progresses.
Exhibition games begin Wednesday, September 1 against the Blackfalds Bulldogs.
The home opener is Friday, September 17 vs the Lloydminster Bobcats.
