Forward Aidan Ballance of the Golden Rockets is Manitoba bound to join a brand new team in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.
Ballance tallied nine goals and 10 assists in 38 games for fourth in team points.
“I had a pretty good year. I would have liked to have more points, but points aren’t everything,” said Ballance, who developed strong defensive skills during his rookie season with Golden.
“I really grew as a player and as a person this season. I really liked the way I played and felt I was one of the top players on my team and on the ice every night.”
Eight of his points were on the powerplay.
