Cole Slaney, in three seasons of Junior hockey, has played 99 regular season games, 2/3 of those with the Campbell River Storm. He has proven to be a disciplined (just 28 PiM), defense-first backliner who is comfortable jumping into the rush. They don’t come any more dependable than #91.

Here’s his first Junior goal.
