Vees send goaltender Carl Stankowski to Grande Prarie in exchange for goaltender Kaeden Lane

The Penticton Vees Junior A Hockey Club announced Tuesday the team has acquired 18-year-old goaltender Kaeden Lane from the Grande Prairie Storm of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) in exchange for 20-year-old goaltender Carl Stankowski.

Lane, 18, has played each of the last two seasons with the Storm after two seasons with the Burnaby Winter Club. The 5’11”, 170-pound netminder has posted a 3.22 goals against average along with an .897 save percentage in 74 career games with the Storm while registering 31 victories in that span, including four shutouts.

The Medicine Hat, Alberta native played with the Burnaby Winter Club Midget Prep team during the 2017-18 season, posting a 1.44 goals against average and .946 save percentage while suiting up in 16 games for the club.

Stankowski, 20, came to the Vees in late October and played in 18 games for Penticton after making his way to the South Okanagan from the Western Hockey League. The Calgary, Alberta native posted a 14-3 record with a 2.08 goals against average and a .915 save percentage with the Vees during the 2019-20 season.

The move leaves Lane and goaltender Yaniv Perets as the Vees’ likely duo for next season.

Perets posted a 25-8-1 record with a .918 save percentage and a goals against average of 2.19 in 37 regular season appearances last season.
