The Penticton Vees have added defenseman Frank Djurasevic to their lineup for the 2020-21 season.
The 18-year-old split last season between the American Youth Hockey League (AYHL) and the United States High School Preparatory league (USHS-prep).
The 6’2”, 190-pound rearguard began last season patrolling the blue-line in the AYHL with the North Jersey Avalanche U18 squad, playing in 28 games and compiling 6 goals and 13 assists for 19 points during that span.
Djurasevic helped his North Jersey Avalanche team to an AYHL U18 Premier championship.
He then went on to complete the 2019-20 campaign with Trinity-Pawling School in the USHS-prep league, amassing 4 goals and 16 assists for 20 points in 21 games from the blue-line.
The New Rochelle, New York native, who is a dual citizen of both the United States and Canada, played two seasons at the Selects Hockey Academy before making his way to U18 hockey last season.
Djurasevic played 93 total games with the program, scoring 12 goals and adding 46 assists for 58 points during his two seasons.
