Wheat Kings’ Goaltender Logan Thompson Signs With Brock University

Thompson spent the past three seasons serving as the last line of defence in Brandon for the Wheat Kings. The now 21-year-old Calgary, AB. product honed his craft in the Alberta Junior Hockey League before transitioning over the WHL play. 

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound goalie put up a 63-41-4 record with the Wheaties from the 2014-15 season until his final junior hockey season in 2017-18. Thompson was counted upon more and more as his career progressed, playing in just four games in 2014-15, 23 in 2015-16, 40 in 2016-17 and then ultimately ending his career in playing 55 of his team’s 72 contests. 

Thompson finished off his overage WHL season with 29 victories, three shutouts, a .908 save percentage and a 3.41 goals against average. He was also voted in as a WHL Second Team All-Star. 

The Calgary native will move to St. Catharines and join the Brock University Badgers in the 2018-19 season, battling alongside Surrey’s Mario Cavaliere in the crease. Brock finished the 2017-18 season with a 14-9-5 record in the West Division of the Ontario University Athletics Association.
