Posted October 4th, 2018 @ 12:49 pm

BROOKS, AB (October 4, 2018) – The Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) have acquired 1999-born defenceman Andrew Lucas (Alexandria, VA) from the Nanaimo Clippers of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), the team announced today.

In exchange, the Bandits sent 1999-born forward Thomas Samuelsen (Williston, VT) to the Clippers.

Lucas, 19, has scored 3 assists in 10 games so far in the BCHL split between the Langley Rivermen and Nanaimo, with 6 penalty minutes. Last year, in 26 Founders League games for Loomis Chaffee School, the 5’10”, 170lb defenceman had 28 points (10 goals, 18 assists), and was named to the All-Conference West team by the New England Preparatory Schools Athletic Conference (NEPSAC) for the second consecutive year. He is committed to the NCAA Division I University of Vermont.

Samuelsen, 19, recorded 1 assist in 2 games with the Bandits after being recruited from Kimball Union Academy.

The Bandits are back in action on Saturday night in Canmore taking on the Eagles in search of a seventh consecutive win, before returning home Monday, October 8th at 4:00 PM for a special Thanksgiving Day game against the Okotoks Oilers. Tickets are available at tickets.brooksbandits.ca and are free for all fans under 18.
