Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Blazers announced this morning that they have signed 17-year-old goaltender Connor Ingram to a standard WHL player agreement.
Ingram was listed by the Blazers in September 2013 after attending last year’s training camp. The Imperial, SK native went on to play with the Prince Albert Mintos of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League and win a National Championship.
The 6’1” and 212lb goaltender had a remarkable season with a 1.98 goals against average and .928 save percentage going 16-4-3 during last season. He was named the SMAAAHL Top Goaltender and also was the Player of the Month during November.
During the Telus Cup National Championship, Ingram was the co-winner of the Top Goaltender award. He finished the tournament with a 1.66 goals against average and .950 save percentage. In the championship game, Ingram stopped 60 shots as the Mintos won in triple overtime.
Ingram will make his Blazers debut this weekend as the Blazers play two WHL preseason games. On Friday, August 29th, the Blazers will host the Vancouver Giants at 7:00pm at the ISC in their first WHL preseason game. The hockey club will play on Saturday, August 30th at 7:00pm in Kelowna.
