Bruins sign two draft picks

The Chilliwack Bruins have announced the signing of forwards Clay Spencer and Luke Harrison to standard Western Hockey League education contracts.

With the signings the Bruins have now inked their top three selections from the 2010 WHL bantam draft.

First round pickKeegan Kanzig signed with the Bruins in June.

Spencer, a native of Lethbridge, AB., was Chilliwack’s second round selection, 29th overall. In 33 games last season with Lethbridge of the Alberta Bantam Hockey League, the six-foot and 160 pound center scored 30 goals, adding 36 assists.

Westbank native Luke Harrison was selected by the Bruins in the third round, with the 51st overall selection.

Harrison, a six-foot and 175 pound forward, performed well last season with the Westside Bantam tier-two team.

“We’re really pleased to have these two players join our organization,” said Bruins general manager and head coach Marc Habscheid. “They performed well throughout camp and we look forward to seeing them improve throughout the coming season.”

As-yet unsigned players from the most recent bantam draft include Coleman Vollrath, Brodie Clowes, Linden Bourne, Reid Halabi, Taylor Crunk and Chandler Irvin.
