A young hockey player born and raised in Kimberley is excited to don the jersey of his hometown team.
Braiden Koran signed with the Dynamiters after spending 13 games with the team as an affiliate player last year.
Koran says committing to the team is a dream come true.
“It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do as a kid, play for the Dynamiters in my hometown.” says Koran. “It’s awesome.”
Cranbrook products Jackson Bohan and Erik Delaire also committed to the Nitros for the 2018-19 season.
Koran says it won’t be the first time the trio suits up together.
“I’ve played with them all since peewee.” says Koran. “When we used to play together I used to be on Erik’s line all the time and we had super good chemistry.”
Koran and Delaire both joined the Dynamiters in the KIJHL Final and Cyclone Taylor Cup last season.
The 16-year old says he hopes to move up to Junior A once he’s developed himself in Kimberley.
