The six-foot, 165-pound Edmonds, a Winnipeg native and ninth-round draft pick of the Cougars in 2011, played last season in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League for the Virden Oil Capitals. In 26 games, he had a 3.74 goals-against average and .887 save percentage. Edmonds played half the game Saturday in the Cougars 8-4 triumph over the Red Deer Rebels. "Brett Zarowny and Ty Edmonds played very well on the weekend and we just felt this was a good move to make us a better team," said Cougars general manager Dallas Thompson. "It gives us an 18-year-old and a 17-year-old and that's a good thing obviously. We'll fill those 20-year-old spots at some point, depending on what comes along." After opening the preseason in St. Albert last weekend with wins over Red Deer and Medicine Hat, the Cougars host the defending Eastern Conference-champion Edmonton Oil Kings Friday and Saturday at CN Centre.
