The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed goaltender Trevor Cann to an entry-level contract.
Cann, the Avalanche’s third selection (second round, 49th overall) in the 2007 Entry Draft, posted a 35-15-0-1 record in 52 combined appearances for the OHL’s Peterborough Petes and London Knights in 2008-09. The 20-year-old netminder finished second among league goaltenders in shutouts (6), third in wins and save percentage (.919) and ranked fourth in goals-against average (2.62).
Cann, who was acquired by London on Nov. 7, backstopped the Knights to the third round of the OHL playoffs, compiling a 9-4 record in 13 postseason appearances.
“Trevor has a very strong fundamental base and a solid understanding of the position,” said Avalanche Vice President of Hockey Operations Craig Billington. “We are excited for him to begin his professional career.”
The Oakville, Ontario native just completed his fourth season in the OHL. Cann also has international experience with Team Canada, serving as Canada’s starting goaltender at the 2007 IIHF Under-18 World Championship.
