Summerland, BC – The Summerland Steam have announced a trade ahead of the January 10th trading deadline, sending forward Cory Loring (’99) to the 100 Mile House Wranglers in exchange for Future Considerations.
Loring, a 20-year old from Williams Lake, BC, spent parts of three seasons with the Steam and was a popular figure in a dressing room full of long-time teammates. In all, Loring played 95 games with the Steam, collecting 33 goals and 83 points while playing all three forward positions in all situations.
He will return to the Cariboo and be as close to home as one can be in the KIJHL, just an hour from his friends and family in Williams Lake. He joins the Cyclone Taylor Cup Host Wranglers for their stretch drive as they fight for positioning in a tough Doug Birks Division. The Wranglers currently sit third with a 15-15-1-0 record, and will count on Cory to provide veteran leadership and an offensive spark as they make their run to hosting the Cyclone Taylor Cup from April 16-19, 2020 at the South Cariboo Rec Centre.
The Summerland Steam organization wishes to thank Cory for his efforts both on and off the ice during his time in Summerland, and wish him all the best in his future endeavors including hockey and beyond.
