The Moncton Wildcats have received a commitment from 1996 born and the Cats 6th round draft pick in 2012 Conor Garland. He is anticipated to suit up for his first QMJHL game on Friday versus Victoriaville. Garland has been playing with the Muskegon Lumberjack in the USHL as a 16 year old where he had 3 points in 6 games.
“Conor is an offensively gifted young player. I had the opportunity to coach him in a tournament in Moncton this summer. He has great hockey sense and a nose for the net.” described Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Danny Flynn. “Keep in mind that he is just 16 years old but he has the potential to develop into a very
good offensive player for the Wildcats down the road.”
Conor previously played with the Boston Jr. Bruins in the EmJHL where he had 94 points in 40 games. In the 2010-2011 Season he played with Shattuck St. Mary’s and scored 116 points in 52 games.
