TRADE: Capitals acquire Umass-Lowell Commit Truman from Bonnyville

The Capitals are excited to announce the acquisition of 20 year old forward Roc Truman from the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Bonnyville Pontiacs in exchange for 18 year old forward Adam Grenier and future considerations. Truman hails from Lethbridge Alberta, and has spent his previous three years of junior hockey in Alberta. He broke into the AJHL in 2018/19 with 24 goals and 41 points in 51 games, and was named a finalist for the leagues rookie of the year. In the 2019/20 season played just 28 games, but finished above a point per game with 7 goals and 29 points in the shortened season. Last season the AJHL played in pods of three or four teams and Truman was part of the Bonnyville Pontiacs where he totalled 5 points in 13 games.

“Roc is a really solid skater, and a proven goal scorer in the AJHL. He’s smart and really does a good job of reading plays and anticipating things before or as they happen. His addition really strengthens us down the middle, and his size and skill gives him the opportunity to be a great player for us” said Capitals Head Coach & General Manager Brian Passmore.

After the 2021/22 season with the Capitals, Truman will head to Umass-Lowell to play NCAA Division 1 hockey. Truman’s acquisition brings the Capitals to now 7 players that have secured NCAA commitments for after they graduate from junior hockey.

The Capitals would also like to thank Adam Grenier for his one season with the Capitals in the pod, and wish him the best of luck in Bonnyville.

Welcome Roc!
