The Rivermen are pleased to announce that former captain Brendan Budy has elected to return to the BCHL and join the team for the upcoming season. He is currently committed to play for the University of North Dakota next fall.

The 2000-born forward spent the first half of last season at the University of Denver, then played with the Tri-City Storm of the USHL in the latter half where he recorded 11 goals and 20 assists in 31 games. As captain of the Rivermen in 2017/18, Budy netted 22 goals and 34 assists in 49 games and was a force in the offensive corps.
