(Sioux City, IA) - The Sioux City Musketeers are excited to announce the addition of forward Carter Loney.
Loney, a right-handed shooting centerman and a Minnesota-Duluth commit, was born in Columbus, Ohio, but makes his home in Winnipeg.
"Adding a player of Carter's caliber is a gigantic boost to our lineup,” said Musketeer general manager Andy Johnson, “He's been a point producer every step of his career and we expect that to continue when he arrives in Sioux City.”
Loney was preparing for his first season as a member of the BCHL’s Salmon Arm Silverbacks but never got the chance to appear in a game. He spent the past two years in the MJHL with the Steinbach Pistons, where he tallied 50 points in 52 games a season ago. Loney has reiterated that he plans to finish this season in Sioux City regardless of the BCHL’s return-to-play strategy.
“With Carter we add a mature center that competes, plays both ends of the rink and can make a ton of offensive plays,” continued Johnson.
Loney, 18, is listed at 5’10 and weighs 161 pounds. He is the reigning Rookie of the Year in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League and represented Canada West at last year’s World Junior A Challenge, along with current Musketeer defenseman Ethan Edwards.
