Trevor is 6 feet, 190 pounds and can play any forward position, which Rivermen Associate Head Coach, Jordan Emmerson is a big fan of,
“Trevor is a piece of the puzzle for us, he is a versatile, gritty forward with a good skill set and plays both ends of the rink very well”, said Emmerson, “he brings an outstanding compete level and produced at a high rate in a very good league last year and we expect him to come in here and contribute right away.”
Trevor had other Junior “A” options around North America, but thought that the BCHL was the right route to go,
“It seemed like the right place for me and it is a great league from what I hear and cannot wait to get to Langley and get started,” said Cope.
