Varsity Reds Go West To Find Goaltending

For the first time in four years the University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds have added a player out of the Western Hockey League, announcing the addition of goaltender Rylan Parenteau from the Tri-City Americans.

Parenteau joins the V-Reds after a season in which he went 25-14-0 with a 3.26 goals against average and a 0.900 save percentage in 42 games with the Americans. His best season came in 2015-2016 with the Prince Albert Raiders when he posted a record of 25-17-6, a 2.82 GAA, and a save percentage of 0.913 in 55 games. For his efforts, he was named a 2nd team WHL all-star and invited to the Vancouver Canucks summer development camp.

A native of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Parenteau will join returning netminder Alex Dubeau to make up UNB's goaltending tandem.
