The Halifax Thunderbirds have announced that forward Chris Boushy has signed a two-year contract deal with the franchise.
Boushy was drafted in the Third Round by Saskatchewan in 2017, but things never panned out from him with the Rush. Boushy was signed by Calgary prior to the 2018-19 season and had a breakout first half of the season with the Roughnecks.
Boushy was traded from Calgary to Rochester on March 7th, 2019. Boushy continued his breakout season with Rochester. In his debut with the Knighthawks he scored seven goals, absoutley catching fire. Boushy tallied 22 points (14G/8A) in eight games with Rochester while having 14 points (8G/6A) in eight games with Calgary.
In a press release, Halifax head coach Mike Accursi said, “He is one of the young up and coming talents in this league and he is continuing to grow as a player and I’m excited to be apart of the process. Boushy is a dynamic player with a great shot and great floor vision. He’s going to be a player to watch.”
The Johannesburg, South Africa native is a rising star in the NLL and should be an even bigger piece of the Thunderbirds offense this coming season as they move from Rochester to Halifax. Boushy will be playing along side much of the same players from last season in Rochester such as Kyle Jackson and others.
