T’Hawks Acquire Player from Canada

The Puget Sound Tomahawks picked up free agent Dustin Pierce, an 18-year-old forward, from the Kootenay International Junior A Hockey League this week.

Pierce played five game for the Creston Valley (B.C.) Thunder Cats before being released. 

Puget Sound coach Jason Quinn said Pierce will be a nice addition to the Tomahawks.

“He works extremely hard and (has) a lot of upside,” he said. 

Quinn added Pierce, a big, strong forward at 6-foot, 190-pounds, practiced this week with the team and would likely play in one of the top two lines this weekend. Puget Sound plays in the NOR-PAC Junior A League.

Puget Sound forward Jordan Davidson could return to the ice next week missing the first two weeks of the season after breaking his collarbone during practice. The 6-foot, 170 pound Tacoma native will have a follow-up X-ray this week to determine his availability for next weekend, Quinn said. … The Tomahawks roster stands at 21 players but with the addition of Pierce and Davidson Puget Sound could be near its 25-player limit by next week. Quinn said he is also looking at adding another player through free agency and another through a trade. … The Tomahawks return to the Bremerton Ice Center Friday as they host the River City Jaguars. The game begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets ($7) are available at the door.
