Brought in as a domineering presence on the blueline, North Carolina native Charlie Pelnik has certainly made himself known to others in the league as what he first said he wanted to be in the BCHL, that is a defensive defenceman with a heck of a mean streak.
Brought in by Bobby Henderson in October, the 6’4″, 215 pound blueliner now has over 50 BCHL games under his belt. At first he came in not knowing a whole lot about the nuances of the BCHL, and had never even been to Western Canada before. After getting accustomed to the league, Pelnik has played his best hockey with the team the last several weeks.
Committed to play at the University of North Dakota, Pelnik has a lot to look forward to both near, and long-term. As a player that says he’s always looking for the next challenge, he’s excited to say the least about the start of his first Fred Page Cup Playoffs and the chance to be playing well into the spring.
