Rockets Sign 2018 First Round Pick Wong
The Kelowna Rockets are pleased to announce the signing of 2003 born forward, Trevor Wong to a standard Western Hockey League (WHL) Player Agreement. The 15-year-old product of Vancouver, British Columbia, was selected by the Rockets 18th overall at the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft in May. He will make his WHL debut tonight against the Prince George Cougars.
“We are thrilled that Trevor and his family have decided to commit to the Kelowna Rockets and the Western Hockey League,” said Rockets General Manager Bruce Hamilton. “I congratulate our scouts, for selecting Trevor in last year’s Bantam Draft. He is truly a special player and even better young man, we look forward to watching his career unfold. ”
Wong is playing midget with the Greater Vancouver Canadians (BCMML) this season and is only eligible to play five regular-season WHL games. The 5’8, 135 pound forward, has 11 points (4g, 7a) and two penalty minutes in 1o games played so far this season. Last season he recorded 64 goals and 77 assists for 141 points in just 30 games with St. George’s School Btm Varsity (CSSBVHL). He also added 5 goals and 18 assists for 23 points in five postseason games.
“It’s an exciting moment for me. I’ve thought about this decision really hard, and I’m happy to be a Rocket,” said Wong. “When I came to training camp in the summer, I was here for about a week and loved everything about Kelowna. Just looking at their past, I’m excited to be a part of their future.”
