Prince George, BC – The Prince George Cougars are pleased to announce that they have signed goaltender Ty Edmonds (Winnipeg, MB) to a standard Western Hockey League contract.
The Cougars drafted Edmonds in the ninth round of the 2011 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.
“I’m looking forward to coming to camp and trying to make the team next season,” said Edmonds. “It would be a dream come true to play for the Prince George Cougars.”
So far this season Edmonds has performed very well in the Manitoba Midget AAA Hockey League. Edmonds has a record of 15-1-0-0 with two shutouts. His goals-against-average is currently 1.87 and his save percentage sits at .908.
Edmonds represented Manitoba at the U-16 Challenge Cup in Moose Jaw back in October, and helped Manitoba earn a silver medal at the tournament.
“We think Ty has a great attitude and a great work ethic,” said Prince George Cougars Assistant General Manager and Director of Player Personnel Wade Klippenstein. “We feel that he can be the type of player that we’ll need in order to be a championship team.”
