Kubic to Attend Canucks Prospects Camp
“This opportunity is a great one for Ryan and will really help with his development,” said General Manager Glen Hanlon. “It’s always nice to see our players recognized, especially by our hometown NHL team.”
Kubic, who hails from St. Andrews, Manitoba, is coming off his rookie season in the WHL. He played in 50 games for the G-Men in 2015/16, posting a 3.31 goals against average to go along with a .898 save percentage.
“It means a lot,” said Kubic of being invited to the camp. “When you see the kind of players who have gone through their camps and the fact that my first NHL camp is in Vancouver, I’m really excited for it.”
Kubic set the Giants’ franchise record shutout streak when he didn’t allow a goal in over three games of action in late November and early December. The 18-year-old was originally a second round pick of the Giants in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft.
