The Swift Current Broncos announced Thursday that they have signed goaltender Travis Child to a Western Hockey League contract.
The Killam, AB product was the team’s second round pick, 29th overall, in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft.
He made his WHL debut on Tuesday in a rookie game against the Moose Jaw Warriors, allowing one goal on 10 shots over 28:18 of work in a 3-1 loss.
The 6’1’’ netminder posted a 7-8-4 record with the Camrose Vikings of the Alberta Major Bantam Hockey League last season. He registered a .910 save percentage and a 3.46 goals against average.
Child also took part in the 2012 Allstate All-Canadians Mentorship Camp in Toronto this past summer with 41 of the country’s best bantam-aged players. He is also one of five goaltenders shortlisted for the Team Alberta U16 Program.
