Bombers Bring Back Big E

by Bombers Staff

The Long Beach Bombers are proud to announce the return of veteran  forward, Erik Ehrmantraut. The 6’2, 192lb left shot forward hails from  Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and was born December 16, 1999. Last season,  Ehrmantraut compiled a stat line of 37GP-9G-6A-15PTS-72PIMs.


Ehrmantraut  started his 2017-2018 season in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League,  before moving to the PJHL, then down to Long Beach and the WSHL. In 23  Games Played for Long Beach, Ehrmantraut recorded 6 Goals and 3 Assists,  with 40 Penalty Minutes. The Bombers traded Ehrmantraut to the Valencia  Flyers, in the deal that added Spencer Kozlowski, Matthew Reyes, Lukas  Moravsky, and Melwin Thorsson.


Long Beach Bombers Head  Coach & General Manager, Chris White, commented, “Big E has the  potential to be a very good power forward. He possesses a heavy shot,  and has the ability to be a physical presence. I really liked the style  of game he was playing towards the end of last season, and we expect him  to continue that progression. He’ll have the opportunity to earn a  prominent role, within our forward group, and play some important  minutes. We’re excited he has decided to return.”
