South Surrey’s Scardina to join Cowichan Capitals

Delta Hockey Academy product to play in BCHL next season

South Surrey teenager Ethan Scardina is headed to Vancouver Island to continue his hockey career.

Scardina, who plays for the Delta Hockey Academy, has committed to play this fall for the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the BC Hockey League, the team announced in a news release Friday morning.

Playing for the Delta Academy’s Midget Prep during the 2016/17 season, Scardina scored nine goals and added 21 assists in 28 games. He’s already made his BCHL debut; last year he played one game as an affiliate player for the Vernon Vipers.

“We are pleased to add Ethan to our team and look forward to contributing to his development,” said Capitals head coach and general manager Bob Beatty.

Scardina chose junior ‘A’ over the major-junior route – he was selected by the Everett Silvertips in the sixth round of the Western Hockey League’s bantam draft in 2015.

Scardina will join former Delta teammate Nick Wilson, a Surrey native, with Cowichan this season. In his rookie year with the Caps last year, Wilson scored five goals in 55 games.
