The Prince George Cougars signed first-round selection Ryker Singer to a Standard Player Agreement today (Tuesday).

The Lloydminster, Alberta product was selected 22nd overall in this year’s Bantam Draft, after playing last season for the Lloydminster Bobcats in the Alberta Major Bantam Hockey League (AMBHL).

The 15-year-old lead his team in scoring with 51 points (30G-21A) in 32 games and was fifth overall in the league.

“Singer, like Brown and Heidt, is an elite scorer in his age group. His shot and release are exceptional,” said Cougars’ Director of Scouting, Bob Simmonds.

The 5’8, 157-pound winger captained his team and was co-winner of the AMBHL’s Top Forward and Most Valuable Player awards.

Singer is the third player from the Cougars’ 2020 WHL Bantam Draft Class to sign a Standard Player Agreement, joining fellow first-round selections Riley Heidt and Caden Brown.
