The Truro Bearcats have announced that they have acquired 20 year old forward, Brendan MacRitchie from the Valley Wildcats in exchange for a 1st round pick in the 2024 MHL draft and Future Considerations.
MacRitchie, of Sydney, NS was drafted 10th overall in the 2020 MHL draft by Frederiction and cracked the team the following year as a 17 year old putting up 8 points in 24 games in his rookie campaign. Brendan was dealt to Valley the following offseason and played a key role in their success that followed. He would put up 18 points in 30 games in the 2021-22 season as well as 3 points in 11 playoff games as the Wildcats were one game away from reaching the league final before falling to Truro. Last season in 2022-23 , MacRitchie was 3rd in scoring on the Wildcats, putting up 48 points in 51 games and following that up tied for the team lead in playoff scoring with 5 points in 6 games.
In 16 games this season with the Wildcats, Brendan put up 24 points in 16 games which included an astounding 17 points in his final 5 games as a Wildcat.
Brendan will have to serve the final 2 games of a suspension received during Valley’s November 19th game against West Kent but will be eligible to join the Bearcats lineup at home on Teddy Bear Toss night against Amherst on Wednesday, December 6th.
The organization would officially like to welcome Brendan and his family to the Truro Bearcats!
