A defenceman who was most recently seen playing for the Summerland Steam is staying in the South Okanagan and suiting up for the Penticton Vees next season.

Nate McIsaac has committed to the Fred Page Cup champions for the 2023-2024 campaign, the team announced Thursday, July 27.

The Kelowna product spent the last two seasons with the Steam, where he was coached by the Vees’ newest assistant bench boss Mark MacMillan.

He registered nine points in 44 regular season games in 2022-2023.

McIsaac was also captain of Team B.C. at the 2022 Under-18 National Aboriginal Hockey Championship in Nova Scotia, where he helped lead his home province to a third-place finish.

Before playing for the Steam, McIsaac spent three seasons at the Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy in Kelowna.

The Vees return to the ice for pre-season action in September during the Vancouver Canucks’ Young Stars Classic at the South Okanagan Events Centre.
