The Prince George Cougars have signed forward Matej Toman, who they selected fifth overall in the 2018 CHL Import Draft.

“We’re excited to have Matej in the fold for this upcoming season, as we see him making an impact upfront,” said General Manager Mark Lamb, in a news release. “He’s skilled, skates well, has a great hockey IQ and competes.”

Toman, 17, played for his hometown team HC Ceske Budejovice last season, playing at the Under-18, Under-20 level and with the men’s team in the Czech Third Division. At the Under-18 level, Toman had 15 points (3-12-15) in 11 regular season games and added another 13 points (6-7-13) in seven playoff games, helping lead HC Ceske Budjovice to an Under-18 championship. Toman added 14 points (8-6-14) in 25 games with the Under-20 team, and with the men’s team, the winger had three points (2-1-3) in 15 games.

Internationally, Toman suited up for the Czech Republic at the 2017 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, leading the Czech team in scoring with three goals in six games. He’s currently playing for the Czechs at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alberta.
