The Langley Rivermen Junior “A” Hockey club has traded forward Jackson Playfair (1994) to the Nanaimo Clippers for future considerations. In his first BCHL season, the Fort St. James native played in 53 games recording 6 goals, 12 assists and 69 penalty minutes.
Playfair got off to a bit of a slow start at the beginning of the season, but as the season went along he really found his game. At 6’2, 206 pounds and still growing, Playfair should compliment the Clippers line-up if he plays up to his capabilities.
At the year-end awards banquet, Playfair was named the Rivermen’s most improved player.
The Rivermen organization would like to wish Jackson all the best in Nanaimo.
