The Humboldt Broncos have acquired the rights to 2003-born goaltender Tristan Boileau from the Sainte-Foy Dynamiques of the Ligue de Hockey Collegiale du Quebec (QCHL).
Boileau was official acquired last week and has already suited up for a Broncos’ preseason game. The 19-year-old netminder turned aside 20 of 21 shots in a 4-1 win over the Nipawin Hawks on Saturday, September 3rd.
In 14 games played last year with the Dynamiques, the Charny, QC native finished with a 7-7-0 record to go along with a 2.86 GAA and .910 SV%.
In addition to playing in the QCHL last season, Boileau also gained valuable experience against Major Junior competition as he suited up for 19 games in the QMJHL with the Val-d’Or Foreurs. Over the course of his QMJHL tenure he finished with a 6-7-1 record, 4.13 GAA, and .883 SV%
“Tristan is a goalie that has come highly recommended. He is still only 19 years of age, and with a season of Major Junior experience, those are very valuable aspects to our club,” said Head Coach and GM, Scott Barney.” “He’s very fast and composed in the net. He also had a fantastic showing in his first ever preseason game on Saturday where he made a bunch of high-end key saves. We’re excited to have him in a Broncos uniform.”
Boileau will look to secure the number one role through the Broncos’ final three preseason games.
The Humboldt Broncos and the City of Humboldt would like to welcome Tristan and his family to the team and the community.
