Penticton Vees land 'strong 2-way centre' from Ontario

Interior Conference champions ink Caton Ryan for 2024-2025 season
One of the newest members of the Penticton Vees, Caton Ryan, in the Central Canada Hockey League.

For the fourth time in as many days, the Penticton Vees have added to their roster.

The Interior Conference champions signed Ontario forward Caton Ryan, the club announced Saturday, June 8.

Ryan, a forward who most recently played for the Carleton Place Canadians in the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL), marks the Vees' fourth signing since Wednesday, June 5.

"Caton is a strong two-way centre that can contribute to all areas of the game," said Fred Harbinson, Penticton's head coach, general manager and president. "It's so valuable when you can add another player who has already seen what it takes to play and succeed at the junior level."

Ryan, who turns 18 later this month, led his team in scoring during the 2023-2024 season, posting 59 points in 55 games.

He was named to the CCHL's all-rookie team in 2022-2023, after tallying 38 points in 55 games as a 16-year-old.

"I'm honoured to commit to the Vees," Ryan said. "Joining such a prestigious team with a winning culture supported by incredible fans is very exciting."

Penticton, who watched its season end late last month at the hands of the Surrey Eagles, also looked to the CCHL earlier this week when they inked 19-year-old forward and former Nepean Raider Luke Posthumus.
