The Maple Ridge Burrards have traded a backup goaltender to the Langley Thunder.

The Maple Ridge WLA club will send the playing rights of goalie Charles Claxton to the Thunder in exchange for a third-round draft pick in the 2018 draft.

Claxton appeared in six games last year with the Burrards, playing a total of 59 minutes and 45 seconds, and stopping 35 of the 42 shots he faced.

He was drafted into the WLA 11th overall in the 2016 graduating junior draft by the Burrards from the Victoria Jr. A Shamrocks.

The Burrards begin their 2017 campaign on May 27 in Coquitlam, and play their home opener the next night at 6:45 p.m. at Cam Neely Arena.
