The Waywayseecappo Wolverines are happy to announce the acquisition of forward Joey Moffatt from the Anchorage Wolverines of the NAHL.
The Portage la Prairie product has been playing with Anchorage this season, scoring 8 goals in 25 games so far. He has played most of his junior career in the CJHL. Moffatt had 157 points in 163 games in his first three seasons with the Portage Terriers. He then played with the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the BCHL last season, with 9 points in 20 games.
Moffatt has made the most out of his time in junior so far, winning an MJHL Turnbull cup championship and an Anavet Cup with Portage in 2018. He was also a teammate of newly acquired Kolton Shindle during his time with the Terriers.
His individual accolades include making the MJHL/SJHL showcase twice in his three years, winning four MJHL Player of the Week awards, and winning the Portage Terriers Rookie of the Year Award in 2018.
“He’s a pure goal scorer. He’s definitely going to help us win hockey games,” said Head Coach Taylor Harnett. “He wants to finish off his junior career with as much success as he can. It’s a tremendous opportunity for the Wolverines to have another player who knows what it’s like to hoist the Turnbull Cup.”
The Moffatt family are no strangers to the Wolverines organization. Joey’s older brother Brody, played a significant role during the 2019/20 campaign.
“Brody knows Taylor and Josh obviously and he had nothing but great things to say about the organization,” says Moffatt.
And it’s pretty clear that there is one thing on Joey’s mind when talking about why he wanted to come to Waywayseecappo.
“The team is built for this year, and they want to win this year,” says Moffatt. “You only have five years in your junior career, and I want to be playing meaningful games in March, April and May.”
The Waywayseecappo Wolverines would like to welcome Joey to the Wolverines organization.
