First Signing of 2017-2018 Season
Thief River Falls, MN | The Thief River Falls Norskies have signed forward Chris Pedersen (6’4 210 lbs. Defenseman, 1999) for the 2017/2018 SIJHL season. Chris is from Calgary, Alberta he played for the North Okanagan Knights of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) Junior B team in 2016/2017.
Chris is a big, strong, physical, Defenseman that will be hard to play against for opposing teams. He has good hands and an extremely hard shot. With his size and strength, he will be tough in the corners and in front of the net.
I am extremely excited to become a part of Norskie Nation in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. During my first weekend there they welcomed me with open arms and the staff and community support was incredible. I can’t wait to experience more when the season begins.
Overall, the North Okanagan Knights entire organization has helped me immensely. From Coach Perrier and the coaching staff to the volunteers, my billet family (the Sieverts), the management team as well as the community of Armstrong who supports the team, everyone did so much for me and I can’t thank them enough. Best of luck in the upcoming season Knights!
“We wish Chris all the best in his new adventure in Thief River Falls, said Coach Perrier. He deserves this opportunity. He has committed himself this off-season and I know Chris will continue to improve and develop as a player. It was a pleasure to work with Chris. He is a stand up person all the way. We need more Chris Pedersen’s playing for the North Okanagan Knights.”
