COUGARS DEAL FOR A GOALIE, SIGN A DEFENSEMAN

The Victoria Cougars have acquired goaltender Patrick Ostermann from the Creston Valley Thunder Cats of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League in exchange for cash.

In addition, Alexander Benger inked a contract after spending the last two seasons playing for the South Island Royals of the British Columbia Major Midget League.

Ostermann, 19, had a career-best 15 wins and a .908 save percentage in 20 games in help leading Creston Valley to a first place finish in the Eddie Mountain Division.

His 2.47 goals against average ranked seventh amongst all goaltenders in the KIJHL.

The Cougars received a major boost to their blue line with the signing of Benger, 18, who amassed eight goals, nine assists, and 40 penalty minutes in 40 games last year.

Standing six-foot-four and weighing in at 190 pounds, Benger poses as a huge obstacle for opposing forwards to get around.

Both players will be primed and ready come training camp in August.
