IceDiggers add West for '06-07 blueline

The Alpena IceDiggers have added Evan West to the growing number of players signed for the upcoming season.

The 6-foot, 198-pound efensemen spent last season playing under Chris Coury for the Belle Tire Major Midget AAA team out of Fraser.

"Evan brings both experience and hard work to the team," Alpena coach-GM Kenny Miller said. "He played in the national tournament this season, so he knows what it takes to win. Not only are we getting a good player, but we are getting a great kid. He comes highly recommended from his past coaches."

West hails from the same hometown, Marysville, as current IceDigger defenseman Chad Billins.
