Connor McClennon making ICE debut tonight
A key piece of the Kootenay ICE’s future (circa 2018-2021) will be making his debut with the Western Hockey League club this evening.
The ICE announced Nov. 8 it has recalled 2002-born forward Connor McClennon on an emergency basis.
McClennon, selected in the first round (second overall) in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft, is expected to make his WHL debut tonight, November 10 when the ICE host the Prince Albert Raiders.
The Wainwright, Alberta resident has amassed 19 points in 12 games with the Northern Alberta X-Treme Prep in the CSSHL this season. McClennon also represented Team Alberta in the WHL Cup in October, where he registered 10 points in five games en route to a silver medal.
The next home game for the ICE is Friday, November 10, at Western Financial Place in Cranbrook against the Prince Albert Raiders.
Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m.
