The Waywayseecappo Wolverines have acquired Forward Troy Hamilton (01) from the Estevan Bruins in exchange for future considerations.
Hamilton, a native of Brandon, was caught off guard by the trade but is looking forward to wearing the Wolverines jersey for the first time. “I’ve never been traded before, so the move came as a shock; With that said, I was also very excited to be coming to Wayway, and I can’t wait to get back on the ice with the boys.”
As a first-year U-20 player, Hamilton enjoyed a strong season, putting up 29 points (11 Goals, 18 assists) in 41 games. However, Hamilton is far from just an offensive threat; he added 100 penalty minutes to last seasons point totals. The edge he brings in his game is something he feels Wolverines fans will love. “Fans can expect an offensive forward who battles hard in the corner and goes to the front of the net hard. I take pride in playing for my team, and I’m not scared to throw my body around or fight. Anything it takes to win.”
Before he got going in Estevan, Hamilton proved himself to be a winner. The 5 “10′, 170 pound forward played two seasons for the Vincent Massey Vikings High-School team, winning the league championship both years. His success didn’t stop there; In 2017-18, Troy made the Brandon AAA U-18 team, putting up 76 points (36 Goals, 40 Assist) en route to another league Championship.
After the disappointing news of the MJHL season being postponed until January, adding Troy brought excitement to Head Coach and General Manager Taylor Harnett. “Troy is a player that we are familiar with. We have watched his progression from U-18 to Junior. He’s got a terrific offensive upside and possesses an excellent work ethic. We are excited to get back to playing and seeing him putting on that Wolverine uniform.”
Besides having the opportunity to chase a championship in Waywayseecappo, Troy, a proud Metis, is looking forward to being a role model for our community’s children. “I’m hoping that I can show the kids a good time and have the chance to interact with them. I want to do my part in making Wolverine games a good outing for the community.”
The Wolverines would like to welcome Troy and his family into our organization!
