Langley Rivermen Summer Update June 8, 2012 7:05 AM

The Rivermen are still a few months away from hitting training camp, but the roster is already taking shape. The club announced defenseman Thomas Nitsche as its Captain, as well as the signing of eight new players.

Nitsche was a BCHL rookie last year, scoring four goals and 15 assists in 55 games. Nitsche has already returned to Langley to gear up for the upcoming season.

Langley also added defenseman Viktor Dombrovskiy and forward Ben Butcher

Dombrovskiy is a five-foot-ten, 170-pound defender from Coquitlam. The 16-year-old Dombrovskiy played last season in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League with the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs, recording one goal and eight assists in 24 games.

Butcher, who is from Bellingham, is six-foot-two and 190-pounds. He is also the son of former NHLer Garth Butcher. He was in camp with the Rivermen last year and the team’s coaching staff has kept him on their radar. Butcher, 17, played last season with Kelowna’s Pursuit of Excellence U18 program, where he had eight goals and 14 assists in 42 games.

The Rivermen have also received commitments from forwards: James Robinson (Cochrane, Alta.), Trevor Cope (Michigan), Luke Dietch (Minnesota), Mitchell McLain (Minnesota), Jack Petrino (Michigan) and Josh Belmont (Washington).

The club has also traded forward Jackson Playfair — who won the Rivermen’s most improved player award in 2011-12 — to the Nanaimo Clippers for future considerations, as well as another trade which netted them Langley’s Jakob Reichert in exchange for another local hockey player, Austin Plevy, as well as Sebastien Pare. All three players are forwards.
