Ghostriders sign Jason Greenwell

Last week Fernie Ghostrider goalie Devan Hartigan decided that he wanted to play at a higher level so he has moved on to Ontario where he will play Jr. “A” in Port Hope. Meanwhile quick thinking Rider Coach and GM Will Verner went out and acquired the playing rights to Jason Greenwell from the Surrey Eagles just before Hartigan left.

Coach Verner was happy to so quickly acquire a quality vet like Greenwell. and said “With him in goal there should be no interruption and the team will have continued stability.”

At only 18 years old you wouldn’t think of Greenwell as a seasoned vet but this guy has been in junior hockey since he was 14 and has 3 years of KIHL experience from his time in Spokane and this year he played in Surrey of the BCHL. Last year with the Spokane Braves Greenwell stopped over 91 % of the shots he faced, was 25-16-4, played 2682 minutes had 3 assists and even picked up 59 PIM. Some forwards don’t rack up that many PIM.

With Hartigan, who was 20 years old leaving, and Greenwell who is only 18 coming in, the Ghostriders now have another 20 year old roster spot open for the December and January cut down dates.
