The Langley Rivermen are pleased to announce the signing of 2000 born Forward Justin Plett.
Plett, the Abbotsford native has spent the last 3 seasons in the BC MML Program with the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds, but is having his best season to date right now. Plett currently has 28 goals in 28 games while adding 15 assists for 43 points so far on the year.
“I like to shoot the puck, I feel I have good instincts and finish around the net and I’m being rewarded for it this season. I like to play on both sides of the puck, be physical and engage physically when I can. I have gotten a few good looks in the 5 games I’ve played so far this year with the Rivermen I just haven’t been able to capitalize.” Said the Fraser Valley Captain, Plett.
“Justin came in with an open mind, wanted to earn an opportunity and you can really see his smarts not only in games but in also in practices. You can’t teach goal scoring, you can work on it to refine it but at the end of the day goal scorers are special players and a goal per game in any league is impressive let alone it be in the BC Major Midget League.’ Added Assistant Coach Stefano Ruscitti.
