Two young prospects have signed with the Kootenay ICE following an impressive showing at main camp.
16-year old forward Cody Shepheard joins the ICE organization after spending the majority of last season with the Shawinigan Lake School Varsity team.
Shepheard picked up 36 points and 78 penalty minutes in 30 games in the regular season and playoffs combined.
The ICE also inked 2001-born blue liner Zachary Patrick who spent last season with the Winnipeg Wild Midget AAA.
Patrick’s left-handed shot tallied 33 points in 50 games for the Wild.
Kootenay will head to Kennewick, Washington next week where they open their pre-season tournament on Thursday against the host Tri-City Americans.
