The Prince George Cougars are proud to announce the signing of 2003-born goaltender Tyler Brennan to a Western Hockey League Standard Player Agreement.
The Cougars selected Brennan in the first-round, 21st overall, in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft in May.
“We’re thrilled to add a goaltender of Brennan’s size and ability to our organization,” said General Manager Mark Lamb. “He’s got the tools to be a very good goalie at this level and we look forward to watching him progress over the next year.”
Brennan, who was considered the top ranked goaltender in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft, played last season at the Rink Hockey Academy (RHA) in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL). The Winnipeg, Manitoba, product posted an 11-3-1 record in the Bantam Prep Division, and he led goaltenders in goals-against average (1.53) and save percentage (.947). He also had a league-best five shutouts.
In the CSSHL playoffs, Brennan had a .917 save percentage, leading the RHA Nationals to the Bantam Prep Championship Final against OHA Edmonton.
Brennan is the second signing in as many days for the Cougars organization, following the signing of fellow first-round selection Craig Armstrong on Monday.
Brennan’s signing means 21 of 22 first-round selections in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft have now signed a WHL Standard Player Agreement with their respective team.
