Rivermen add defensive depth

The Langley Rivermen continue tinkering with their line-up as they look to make a move up the BCHL Coastal Conference standings.

The junior A hockey club added 20-year-old defenceman Richard Coyne to their roster.

Coyne, who is from Arizona, joins the Rivermen after spending the past two seasons in the USHL with the Sioux Falls Stampede and the Chicago Steel.

"He is a big steady defenceman that can skate very well," said Rivermen coach Bobby Henderson.

"Richard's leadership is a big asset to our club and will be relied upon to shut down the opposition's best player on any given night."
