The Rayside Balfour Jr. A Canadians of the NOJHL continue to add to their base of skilled veteran forwards by announcing a trade with the Kirkland Lake Gold Miners. The Canadians acquired the rights to 6’, 200 lb left-shot forward KYLER CAMPBELL in exchange for player development fees. Campbell, 20, was originally loaned to the Canadians back in January of this year by Kirkland Lake. The Huntsville native was unable to see any game action for Rayside due to the closure of the local arenas and subsequent cancellation of the 20-21 season. With today’s announcement, Kyler will now be able to complete his Junior hockey eligibility with the Rayside Balfour Canadians hockey program.
“I’m very excited to rejoin Rayside and contribute any way that I can towards the teams’ success. I have been following the NOJHL closely for the last few years and the Canadians have always been a successful organization. They have created a winning culture while consistently developing their players for the next level.” Campbell adds, “I’m confident that my style of play will fit well with the Canadians as they have a great mix of speed, skill and grit. They are a team that can beat you in many different ways. I am looking forward to training camp and meeting my teammates and team staff.” “We are very pleased to add the skill and leadership of Kyler Campbell to our line-up” notes Canadians GM Jeff Forsyth. “We are thrilled that we can officially make Kyler a full-fledged member of the Rayside Balfour Canadians this season, and our team will be much better with Kyler in the line-up.”
The Rayside Balfour Canadians home opener is scheduled for: Thurdsay, September 16th at 7 pm at the Chelmsford Arena against the Espanola Express. The Canadians will be providing local hockey fans with updates on ticket information as it becomes available from the NOJHL and the Province. Presently, arena spectator is restricted to 50% or a maximum of 1,000 fans – whichever is less.
