Grafton’s Liam Filip has signed a Standard Player Agreement with the Cobourg Cougars, the Ontario Junior Hockey League club announced Monday.
Filip, who will turn 17 in August, played for the Vaughan Kings of the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) during the 2019-20 season. He led the Kings with 19 points (nine goals, 10 assists) in 32 games.
“There is a winning pedigree that Liam adds to our program that stems from his commitment to winning puck battles and attention to detail,” Cougars head coach Wes Wolfe stated in a release. “He was an integral part of a championship-winning program in Quinte before joining the Vaughan Kings in his U16 season, where he led his team in scoring and they advanced to the GTHL final.”
Wolfe added that Filip’s “skating and competitive demeanour make him a threat to create scoring chances every time he is on the ice.”
