The Rink Hockey Academy’s Trentyn Crane has agreed to terms on a Standard Player Agreement with the Western Hockey League’s Victoria Royals. 

RHA’s Trentyn Crane Signs in Victoria

Crane, 15, was chosen by the Royals 103rd overall in the fifth round of this past spring’s Western Hockey League Bantam Draft. The 5-foot-9, 165-pound product of Morden, spent the past two seasons lacing up for the Bantam AAA Pembina Valley Hawks.

“Trentyn is a fast, skilled and tenacious forward with high hockey I.Q.,” said Cameron Hope, President and General Manager of the Victoria Royals in a press release. “We are pleased to have signed Trentyn and are excited to see his future as a part of this team.” 

With the Hawks, Crane produced at an astonishing rate, collecting 66 goals and 113 points in just 72 games. The speedy forward also put up a modest 28 penalty minutes in those 72 regular season games. In 2017-18 alone, Crane scored 46 times, and recorded 70 points, nearly finishing the season at a two-point-per-game rate. 

Crane has committed to RHA’s Elite 15s for the 2018-19 season, but will certainly be an option for Victoria in the near future. The Royals finished the 2017-18 season second in the B.C. Division, going 39-27-6, before falling in four games to the Tri City Americans in the second round of the WHL playoffs.
