WEST KELOWNA, B.C. – The West Kelowna Warriors Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club announced Thursday afternoon that the club has traded forward Peter Tomaras (’98) to the Waywayseecappo Wolverines of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) in exchange for future considerations.
Tomaras, 19, played in 61 career games with the Warriors, registering 5 goals and 15 points to go along with 21 penalty minutes during a season and a half in West Kelowna. The 5’10”, 170-pound forward scored 3 goals and 5 points in addition to 6 penalty minutes in 16 games played this season.
Prior to his time in West Kelowna, the Edmonton, Alberta native played three seasons in the Alberta Midget Hockey League (AMHL) with the South Side Athletic Club (SSAC) Athletics where he collected 35 goals and 70 points in 101 games of Midget hockey.
“Peter is a character kid and plays with his heart on his sleeve,” commented Warriors head coach and general manager Rylan Ferster, “We want to wish him all the best in Waywayseecappo.”
The Warriors would like to thank Peter for his time with the Warriors and his contributions to the city of West Kelowna.
The Warriors next action comes up on Friday night as they host the Penticton Vees for the second time this season at Royal LePage Place. Puck drop is slated for 7:00 PM with tickets available through the Warriors office, by calling (250) 769-7051 or at the door ahead of the opening face-off.
