  • Rockets add goalie Brodan Salmond to the roster

    Kelowna Rockets President/GM Bruce Hamilton has announced that the Rockets have added goaltender Brodan Salmond to its roster for the remainder of the WHL season.

    Salmond, 17, has been playing with the Camrose Kodiaks of the AJHL this season where he has posted an 11-6-0-0 record and a 3.02 goals against average in 20 games played as a rookie. 


    The Rockets made the move as starting netminder Jackson Whistle continues to rehab from injury.

    “Jackson hasn’t come along as fast as we had hoped and we continue to assess his recovery,” said Hamilton. “This is an insurance move on our part to bring another goaltender into our organization.”

    Salmond was a 10th round draft pick of the Rockets in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft.


    “As a 17-year-old Brodan has done everything we’ve asked him to do this season,” said Camrose Coach/GM Boris Rybalka. “He has a tremendous work ethic, his compete and battle level is very high and he has a great attitude. I think he’s going to come to Kelowna and push their goaltenders and help them have success.”

    Salmond is expected to arrive in Kelowna on Wednesday.
