“Benji was a huge acquisition for us before the start of the 09-10 season. Benji played a lot of minutes for our club over the last year and I look for Benji to do big things at York this fall. The Drayton Valley Thunder would like to congratulate Benji and his family on this opportunity” stated Thunder General Manager and head Coach Fran Gow.
