DAUPHIN, MB – The Dauphin Kings have added to their goal crease for the upcoming MJHL season.
The Kings announced on Thursday that they have signed 18 year old goaltender Brady Weiss (1999).
The 6’2 goalie from Edmonton spent the last two seasons with the Western States Hockey League’s Dallas Snipers. Last year he played in 30 contests.
“Brady is a good size, athletic goaltender. As an 18 year old he has two years of junior hockey experience and is currently working with Jamie McCaig in Edmonton” says Kings Head Coach and General Manager Marc Berry. Berry worked with McCaig for Team Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge.
“I am extremely excited about coming to Dauphin this season. After talking with Coach Marc, I think it will be a great fit for me” says Weiss.
The product of Edmonton, AB remains very busy during the off season. “I train in the gym two hours per day, 7 days a week working on my strength, quickness and flexibility. I’m also on the ice training with Jamie McCaig and Sean Brown this summer. I had offers in Sweden and other junior teams in North America, but my goal is to play NCAA hockey and playing in the MJHL for an organization like Dauphin will help me reach that goal”
Weiss uses his size to his advantage. “I have a large frame and play my angles very well while using my quickness when needed. Being only 18 years of age and going into my third season of junior A, I have learned how to remain calm and focused.”
The Kings would like to welcome Brady and the rest of his family to the City of Sunshine!
