West Kelowna B.C. – The West Kelowna Warriors are proud to announce blue liner Tyson Jugnauth has been named to the NHL Central Scouting’s ‘Preliminary Players to Watch’ List ahead of the 2022 NHL Draft.
Jugnauth, 17, is committed to the University of Wisconsin (NCAA). The defenceman has logged important minutes on the Warriors’ blue line this season, including quarterbacking the top unit powerplay. As a 16-year-old, Jugnauth led all BCHL rookie blue liners with 17 points (4G-13A) in 20 games during the 2021 BCHL Pod season.
“We are happy to see Tyson land on the watch list”, stated Warriors Head Coach and General Manager Simon Ferguson. “He has been a pleasure to work with for the last two years. He is a player who works hard every day and continues to want to learn and get better every day.”
Juganuth and the rest of the West Kelowna Warriors are back in action this Friday and Saturday afternoon for the BCHL Showcase event in Chilliwack. First game is Friday at 4:00pm against the Victoria Grizzlies, Saturday’s game will also begin at 4:00pm against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Both games take place inside the Chilliwack Coliseum. The game will also be broadcast live on HockeyTV and the BCHLWarriors Mixlr feed.
