Sunshine Coast, B.C. – General Manager and Head Coach Brad Wingfield announced today that the team has traded for the playing rights to 2004-born defenceman Eric Stinson, 2005-born forward Cameron Ross, and 2006-born forward Jacob Wingfield. 

 

All three players grew up on the Sunshine Coast and came by way of the Kerry Park Islanders (VIJHL) through the Port Moody Panthers (PJHL) for player development fees.

 

Eric Stinson (6’2”, 178 pounds) spent the past two seasons with the Kerry Park Islanders, scoring 21 goals and 36 assists for 57 points in 79 regular-season contests. The VIJHL all-star defender has experience in the BCHL and will immediately impact the team’s backend.

 

“Tsunami has added a huge piece to our back end with Eric, one of the top offensive d-man in the province, and will play huge minutes for us,” said General Manager and Head Coach Brad Wingfield.

 

Cameron Ross (5’7”, 169 pounds) played with the Islanders for 30 regular-season games last year, scoring a goal and five assists for six points. 

 

“With Cam, we get a blue-collar veteran that leaves it all on the ice every shift, adds grit and toughness up front, and is one of the best face-off artists at this level,” claimed Wingfield.

 

Jacob Wingfield (6’1”, 184 pounds) has been with Kerry Park since the 2022-23 season and produced 31 goals and 33 assists for 64 points in 78 regular-season games. After being acquired by the Tsunami, Wingfield was traded to the Estevan Bruins in the SJHL for Future Considerations.

 

“At Jacob’s request, we have gone ahead and moved him to the storied Estevan Bruins of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League for future considerations. We will miss his potent attack up front, which registered 38 goals in 65 games last year between the regular and post-seasons. At the same time, we have to respect all players’ decisions on what they feel is best for them.”

 

The organization would like to welcome Eric Stinson and Cameron Ross to the Coastal Tsunami, which will begin its preseason in August.
