The Cranbrook Bucks have added another player to their roster, veteran defenceman Carson Kurylo.

From Calgary, the 19-year-old has played the past three seasons in the AJHL, including two with the Camrose Kodiaks. Kurylo is now set to move across the provincial border to play in the BCHL this upcoming season.

In 137 regular season and playoff games in the AJHL, Kurylo collected 55 points (17 goals, 38 assists).

“We are pleased to add a veteran defender to our lineup for this season,” said Ryan Donald, Head Coach and General Manager of the Cranbrook Bucks.” Our staff believes that Carson will bring leadership and stability to our blue line and will be able to impact our lineup immediately.”

Kurylo also won the AJHL’s Stewy Stewart Memorial Award in 2018 for his character, perseverance, integrity, and sportsmanship.

“Carson is a player that is excited to be a part of the community here in Cranbrook and will be an excellent addition for our hockey club.,” added Donald.

Kurylo is now 15th player on the Cranbrook Bucks roster, joining four other defencemen, nine forwards, and one netminder.
