A former Glenlake Hawk Midget 1 player who was not picked up in either the Bantam draft or the NHL draft has just been signed by the Vancouver Canucks.

Canucks GM Jim Benning announced March 12, 2019 that the club has signed defenceman Josh Teves, 24, to a one-year entry-level contract.

Benning told NHL.com that Teves distinguished himself through his outstanding play for the Princeton Tigers.

“He has good vision and playmaking ability and can contribute in all three zones,” said Benning. “We’re excited to see him play at the professional level.”

After playing for Glenlake Midget 1, Teves played two seasons for the Calgary Royals, one season for the Fernie Ghostriders of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, one season for the Merritt Centennials of the BCHL and four seasons for the Princeton Tigers.
