Vernon Vipers acquire Betinol from SJHL Battlefords

Vernon Vipers acquired forward Josh Betinol from Saskatchewan’s Battlefords North Stars in exchange for future considerations Thursday.

The Vernon Vipers completed their second trade in three days with Thursday’s acquisition of 19-year-old forward Josh Betinol from Saskatchewan’s Battlefords North Stars in exchange for future considerations.

The Okotoks, Alta. product tallied 13 goals and 19 assists for 32 points in 50 games with the Stars last season. He and defenceman Jared Wilson, who Vernon plucked from the Alberni Valley Bulldogs on Tuesday, are expected to make their Viper debuts Friday night when Vernon visits Prince George.

The Snakes are in Salmon Arm to face the SilverBacks Saturday night.

In order to make room for Betinol on the 22-man roster, Vipers head coach/GM Jason Williamson placed injured captain Ryan Renz on the 30-day IR, retroactive to Sept. 14 (the date of his injury).

Renz is expected to make his return to the line-up in a couple of weeks.
