KENT, WA – Seattle Thunderbirds general manager Russ Farwell today announced the team has signed goalie Logan Flodell to a standard WHL Contract and Education Agreement.
“Logan has already distinguished himself within his age group and we believe he will continue to develop to be a very solid goaltender for us in the future,” said Farwell.
Flodell, from Regina, Saskatchewan, was the T-Birds third round selection, 47th overall, in the 2012 Bantam Draft.
Flodell was a member of Team Saskatchewan at the Western Canada U-16 Challenge Cup played November 1 through November 4 in Calgary. He recorded a 2-0-0 record in two games played, stopping 42 of 46 shots he faced.
