The Cowichan Capitals have acquired 2000 born defenceman Nolan Barrett from the Prince George Spruce Kings in exchange for 2001 born forward Kolton Cousins. Barrett, from Glen Ridge, New Jersey, is in his rookie BCHL season. So far he has played 7 games, yet to record a point. Barrett comes from the Skipjacks U18 program out of the United States Premier Hockey League, where last year he scored 6 goals and finished with 23 points, 4th most on the team and most amoung defenceman. Barrett stands 6’1″ and weighs 174 pounds. He is also committed to Merrimack College once he finishes playing junior hockey.
Cousins spent this season and last as a Capital, playing 78 games with Cowichan, between regular season and playoffs, including 4 as an affiliate player in 2017-18. He tallied 6 goals and 10 assists. The Capitals would like to thank Kolton for all of the work he put in as a Capital, and wish him the best up in PG.
