The expansion Las Vegas Golden Knights franchise added another Western Hockey League player to their ranks Thursday, signing Kamloops Blazers goaltender Dylan Ferguson to a three-year entry-level contract.
Ferguson, a seventh-round selection of the Dallas Stars in the 2017 NHL Draft last June, was dealt to the Golden Knights along with a second-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft in exchange for defenceman Marc Methot this summer.
The Lantzville, B.C. product has spent his entire WHL career with the Blazers. Originally selected in the eighth-round of the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft with the 166th selection, Ferguson made his debut with the team Sept. 26, 2015.
Since then, Ferguson has compiled a 20-22-0-2 record in 49 games, also sporting a goals against average of 3.32, save percentage of .904 and one shutout.
The just turned 19 year old (9-28-98) developed as a bantam (2012-2013) and midget (2014-2015) with the Notre Dame Hounds, posting a 2.70 GGA and .907 record in 24 games in his final midget year, before joining the Blazers.
In his first year in the WHL, Ferguson was 4.70 and .875 in 16 games. Last year he improved to 2.74 and .922.
