ICE add to youthful arsenal
The Kootenay ICE yesterday announced the signing of 2001-born forward Holden Kodak.
The Cloverdale, B.C. native has 35 goals and 59 points in 25 games for the Yale Hockey Academy Midget Prep of the CSSHL this season.
Kodak currently leads all midget prep players in points. He’s 15 points ahead of fellow ICE prospect and second overall draft pick Connor McClennon, who is second in league scoring.
The Portland Winterhawks selected Kodak in the 11th round (229th overall) in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft. The ICE listed Kodak in October of this year.
“Holden is a highly skilled forward that has shown tremendous progress this year and we look forward to his continued development,” said Matt Cockell, President and General Manager. “We are excited about Holden’s future with the ICE and thank Holden and his family for choosing our program.”
Throughout his time in the midget prep division, Kodak has recorded 43 goals and 80 points in 55 games.
The next home game for the ICE is Wednesday, December 27 against the Calgary Hitmen. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Tickets are available and can be purchased online at ICEcountry.ca, at the ICE Gear Store at Western Financial Place or at 250-417-0322.
