VANCOUVER--The Colorado Avalanche used the No. 202 overall selection in the seventh round, its final pick at Saturday's 2019 NHL Draft, on goaltender Trent Miner.

Miner, 18, spent the 2018-19 season with the Vancouver Giants in the Western Hockey League. He had a 24-5-1-1 record, three shutouts, 1.98 goals-against average and .924 save percentage in 32 contests during the regular season and a 2.73 goals-against average and .885 save percentage in six postseason games.

In 2017-18 he appeared in nine regular-season outings and three playoff matchups with the Giants.

The Souris, Manitoba, native was the sixth-ranked North American goalie in NHL Central Scouting's final rankings.

Miner, who is 6-foot-1 and 187 pounds, was the fourth player from the WHL and second from the Giants that the Avs chose in the draft, which was held at Rogers Arena.
