Thunder Cats Sign Defenseman Boutcher

GM & Head Coach Bill Rotheisler has announced the signing of defenseman Ethan Boutcher out of Grand Prairie, AB.

Boutcher spent the last two seasons with the Grande Prairie Storm U18 AAA putting up 8 goals and 14 points in 33 games. He takes pride in his offense but is committed to keeping the puck out of the net.

“I love being in the play and creating chances while also bringing solid defense.”After the Covid pandemic threw a wrench into his previous season, Boutcher ultimately decided Creston was the right place to continue his career.”I chose Creston because of how professional the environment is and the great staff … overall [it’s] just a place that suits my style of play very well.

Rotheisler sees Boutcher as a guy that can lead the team up the ice on a rush citing his excellent hockey IQ and swift skating as some of his stand-out attributes.
