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.

TRIO TO CONTINUE PLAYING HOCKEY AT THE NEXT LEVEL

The Victoria Cougars are pleased to announce that Anthony Ciurro has committed to play at the University of Arizona, Kenny Britton has committed to play at the University of Victoria, and Branden Tangney has committed to play at the University of Colorado for the 2017-18 season.

During his three-year tenure in Victoria, Ciurro, 20, compiled 84 wins, a 2.02 goals against average, and a .926 save percentage in 110 games.

Britton, 20, enjoyed a breakout season last year by finishing seventh in team scoring with 16 goals and 20 asssists.

Since his arrival from the Westshore Wolves late last November, Tangney, 19 produced 24 points in 40 games.

Congratulations!

The Victoria Cougars are pleased to announce that Grayden Hohl has committed to play at the University of Central Oklahoma and Tyler Vanuden has committed to play for the Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for the 2017-18 season.

Hohl, 21, led Victoria in scoring last season with 32 goals and 32 assists.

Meanwhile, Vanuden, 19, finished second in team scoring with 51 points.

Injured in Game 3 of the VIJHL Championship Series, Vanuden was forced to miss the remainder of the postseason with an upper-body injury.

Vanuden will be ready for training camp come September.

Congratulations!
