Blazers Sign Dylan Ernst and Tye Spencer
Kamloops, BC - Kamloops Blazers General Manager, Matt Bardsley has announced that the Blazers have signed 2004-born players Dylan Ernst and Tye Spencer. Both were selected by the Blazers in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft in May.
Ernst was selected by the Blazers in the second round of the WHL Bantam Draft. The 6'1" goaltender is from Weyburn, SK and played with the Bantam AA Weyburn Red Wings where he had a 2.99 goals against average and .918 save percentage. He is expected to play with the Moose Jaw Generals of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League this season.
"Dylan is an athletic goaltender who has a presence in the net along with the ability to make difficult saves look routine," said Bardsley. "We are fortunate to have an excellent goaltending coach in Dan De Palma, who can assist in maximizing the development of Dylan."
Spencer was chosen by the Blazers in the third round of the WHL Bantam Draft. The Saskatoon, SK native had 59 goals and 33 assists for 92 points in 31 games this past season.
"Tye is a dynamic forward who plays with good speed and is hungry to score goals," commented Bardsley. "He is quick on the attack and has high end puck skills, with a quick release combined with excellent accuracy."
"We are excited to have Dylan and Tye commit to the Kamloops Blazers organization," concluded Bardsley.
The Blazers have now signed three of their top four picks from the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft after announcing the signing of defenseman Mats Lindgren earlier this week.
