The two newest members of the Waywayseecappo Wolverines took to the ice on Monday morning after being acquired the day before in two separate trades.
Cody Thompson, a 6-foot-5, 229-pound veteran Defenseman, joins the Wolverines after spending the previous three and a half seasons with the Portage Terriers where he helped capture two Turnbull Cup Championships and an Anavet Cup.
“I think I’m a two-way guy, more defensive,” Thompson shared of what he brings to the organization. “I’m good at breaking the puck out of our end, I see the ice well and I think I bring a good shot as well.”
As for his initial thoughts on playing for the Wolverines, Thompson is settling in and is ready to get his time going with the club.
“I’ve only been here for a couple of hours, but I can already tell that this team has no problem with leadership, I hope I can just add to that and help in the playoffs as well.”
“The organization is very well kept, everything was ready for me as soon as I got here. It seems like a great bunch of guys in the locker room and I’m just ready to get things going.”
As for the newest Goaltender on the Wolverines, Ethan Lahmon joins the team from the SJHL’s Melville Millionaires.
After splitting time between the Fairbanks Ice Dogs and Amarillo Bulls in the NAHL, the 18-year-old netminder is ready to go to battle.
“I’m excited to come here and have a fresh start,” Lahmon said after his first practice with the Wolverines. “Hopefully I can help the team win and get closer to the top of the standings. I’ve heard nothing but great things about Waywayseecappo and the team.
According to Lahmon, fans can expect a goaltender that battles for every puck.
“I would say I’m a hybrid style, I like to play the puck as best as I can but I try to battle no matter what play it is. I know they’re going to battle in front of me so I just have to do my job and stop the puck.”
Both Thompson and Lahmon will be on the Wolverines roster for Tuesday nights game against the Winkler Flyers.
