Thunder trade for Saints Goalie Cam Overby

by Owen Munro

The Langley Thunder have acquired goaltender Cam Overby from the Port Coquitlam Saints for a pair of draft picks in the 2020 BCJALL Entry Draft.

Langley will give up their second and third-round selections next year for Overby, who posted solid numbers for the Saints during their playoff run. Overby had the bulk of the Saints' starts last Summer, posting an 8-4 regular season record with a .777 save percentage and 8.44 GAA. He was able to improve on those stats in the playoffs, finishing with a .846 save per centage and 7.72 GAA.

Port Coquitlam had acquired Tyler Pongratz from the Burnaby Lakers earlier this offseason and also drafted Ryder Bremner 11th overall in last weekend's Entry Draft. 

Three goalies tended the crease for the Thunder last season. Torin Vanrheenen played the majority of the minutes and posted an 8-6-0-1 record with a .814 save percentage and 9.21 GAA. Backing him up was 2018 No. 2 Overall Pick Braden Washington, who had solid numbers for a rookie making his first Jr. A starts. He went 2-3 in 369 minutes of work. Dryden Recsky could also figure into the conversation in what will likely be a crowded crease.
