Lethbridge, AB – The Lethbridge Hurricanes announced the addition of a Goalie to their roster prior to Friday’s game with the Spokane Chiefs. The team acquired Teagan Sacher from the Regina Pats for a 5th round pick in 2015.
Sacher was 0-1 with the Pats but limited to just 2 games to start the season because of a groin injury. Last season, the 1994-born Winnipeg, MB native played in 26 games finishing with a record of 8-13-2-0, a 3.87 GAA and a save percentage of .883.
Lethbridge Hurricanes General Manager Brad Robson says “Sacher has very good stick skills. He has a quick glove hand, is agile and effective in setting up his defensemen with the break-out pass.”
Sacher played his midget hockey with the Winnipeg Thrashers and went on to win the Telus Cup in 2011. Hurricanes Manitoba Scout Gary Hanson commented on the 6’0, 181 pound goalie saying “he shows good angle play and good hands. He’s someone who challenges well and doesn’t give up big rebounds.”
Sacher will join the Hurricanes in Brandon as the team plays the Wheat Kings Monday afternoon. Robson expects to finalize his goalie rotation within the next week.
