FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A Fort St. John Minor Hockey product had his Western Hockey League rights traded closer to home.
The Prince George Cougars have acquired 2002-born goalie Jordain Fairlie from the Swift Current Broncos in exchange for goaltender Jacob Herman, the team announced Monday.
Fairlie played last season for the Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia Hockey League. In seven games, he won five and lost two, finishing with a 2.16 goals-against average and a .907 save percentage and two shutouts.
In the 2019-2020 season, Fairlie suited up for the Cariboo Cougars of the B.C. Under-18 AAA league. He was also called up to his Western Hockey League club for one game.
The move sends both goalies closer to home, as outgoing Jacob Herman hails from Swift Current.
Fairlie joins a fairly busy goalie room with three others listed on the Cougars. Tyler Brennan, Ty Young, and Taylor Gauthier are listed on the Cougars roster.
Even if he starts next season with the Spruce Kings, it won’t be hard for Cougars brass to keep tabs on the 18-year-old’s progress.
