The Ridge Meadows Flames have signed three players in about a week, as the Junior B club gets its roster ready for the start of the Pacific Junior Hockey League season.
They have added another local boy. David Stepputat of Pitt Meadows, a forward born in 2003, was the team captain of the Ridge Meadows Rustlers under-18 A1 team.
The Flames also signed Josh Chapman, another 2003 forward, who is a Cloverdale resident and played for the Valley West Giants of the BC Major Midget League. And they signed Derek Leroux, a 2004 forward from Coquitlam, who played for the Coquitlam under-18 A1 team.
The Flames wrapped up their exhibition season with a 4-3 victory over the Richmond Sockeyes on Monday night in a home game.
They are scheduled to open their season on Sept. 10 at Cam Neely Arena, when they host the Port Moody Panthers. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
