Glendale native, California youth hockey product Avakyan signs WHL contract with Tri-City


The WHL’s Tri-City Americans announced this week that the team has signed 2004-born goaltender Nick Avakyan to a WHL standard player agreement.

“Nick is a young goaltender with tremendous potential,” said Tri-City general manager Bob Tory. “This signing improves our depth at the goaltending position for the present and the future.”

The Glendale native played last season with the Anaheim Jr. Ducks’ 16U AAA team, and in eight games in the Tier 1 Elite Hockey League, Avakyan recorded two shutouts with a 1.56 goals-against average and a .938 save percentage.

“I’m honored and proud to be a part of such a great organization,” said Avakyan. “The staff and players have been very welcoming through the whole process. I’m excited to get things started here in Tri-City.”

In addition to the Jr. Ducks, Avakyan also played for the California Golden Bears and Los Angeles Jr. Kings during his youth hockey career.
