Langley’s Callies on the move

Langley forward traded from Thunder to Delta Islanders

Langley Thunder’s Reece Callies tracks down a loose ball during his team’s round robin game against New Westminster at Willoughby Community Park. Callies helped Langley win the gold at the U19 tier 1 field lacrosse provincial title. Callies saw his intermediate A and junior A playing rights traded from Langley to Delta on Oct. 30.

The Langley Junior Thunder have swung a deal with the Delta Islanders.

The Thunder sent the playing rights of local product Reece Callies to the Islanders in exchange for the fourth overall pick in the 2014 junior entry draft, a third round pick in the 2015 draft, the playing rights of Connor McKay and future considerations.

Callies, a six-foot-six, 205-pound forward played for the Thunder intermediate squad this past season. He had 18 goals and 46 points in 16 games for the Thunder in 2013.

Callies, a 2013, Langley Secondary graduate, is on a field lacrosse scholarship at High Point University in North Carolina.

McKay was a second round pick, 11th overall, in the 2013 draft.

He played intermediate A for New Westminster last season, registering four goals and 12 points in 14 games before being traded to Delta in July.
