Continuing to bring in Manitoba talent, the Bison men's hockey team is announcing the addition of forwards Tony Apetagon for the 2019-20 season.
Apetagon, 20, is a 6'2", 175-pound forward from Norway House, Manitoba, who last played for the Winnipeg Blues in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL). He was a First Team All-Star in the MJHL this season, finishing the season third in the league in scoring with 29 goals and 45 assists in 59 games for the Blues (18 games) and OCN Blizzard (41 games).
In six post-season games with Winnipeg, Apetagon added three goals and two assists.
"I'm excited to be joining the Bison men's hockey program as well as getting my education at the same time," said Apetagon. "It'll be nice to represent my home province. I know it'll be a huge step forward from junior hockey to university hockey, but I love adversity and I'm excited to get started."
"I am very pleased to announce the signing of two local Manitoba hockey products to the Bison men's hockey program," said Bisons head coach Mike Sirant
"Tony is a late bloomer who has tremendous upside to his game. He is an excellent skater with good puck skills, and is a natural scorer who can score goals in different ways. I am very impressed with Tony's passion for hockey and how hard he competes in games."
