“We are very familiar with Jordan and what he is capable of as a goaltender,” said GM Mike Hawes. “ With that in mind, we are excited to be adding him to our roster.”
Fairlie, who hails from Fort St. John, spent the 2019-20 season with the Cariboo Cougars of the BC Major Midget League (BCMML). The 17-year-old sported a 10-7-1 record in 18 games played with a 2.47 GAA. Before joining the Cougars, Fairlie spent the 2018-19 season with the Okanagan Hockey Academy of the Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL) where he had a .906 save percentage in 19 games played.
“With the uncertainty regarding the access to affiliate players this season, I decided that we should carry three goaltenders,” said Hawes. “It isn’t unlike what they do in NCAA hockey.”
