The Fighting Walleye has landed a big defenseman for the upcoming season.
That is, Kam River Fighting Walleye of the Superior International Jr. Hockey League has confirmed the return of Trystan Goodman for the 2021-2022 campaign.
Goodman, who has a late 2002 birth date, was with Kam River for two of the four regular season games that the Fighting Walleye played during the severely shortened 2020-2021 season.
Before that, he moved up through the under 15, under 16 and under 18 ranks of the reputable Thunder Bay Kings AAA program.
Kam River general manager Kevin McCallum is looking for the 6-foot-3, 190 pound Goodman to be a tower of strength on the Fighting Walleye blue line this coming season.
“Bringing Goody back is great news for our organization,” McCallum told Hockey News North. “We know what we are getting in a top six defenseman and what he brings to the table. We believe he hasn’t even come close to what he can bring to our line up with more experience in junior hockey. He also brings a toughness to our team that will allow guys a bit more room out there.”
