Bearcat Bytes: Tanner Humber-Dredge

Bearcat -of-the-Week honours went to forward, Tanner Humber-Dredge. In Truro’s home opener, he was among the leaders in the convincing 9-2 win over the Pictou County Crushers. His efforts were rewarded on the score sheet with a goal and a pair of assists. He was a threat each shift, constantly in pursuit of the puck. He was named the game’s First Star.

Following a season with the Kings-Edgehill U16 team, he suited up for a pair of seasons in the Newfoundland Midget AAA League picking up 74 points in 61 games. In his second season, he was the League’s MVP and top point-getter. The 2020 Bearcat Draft pick took a look at the Estevan Bruins before reporting to Truro at the start of last year. He quickly impressed with a full skill set and a tenacious forecheck. He’s exciting to watch and tough to play against.

Hats off to rookie Bearcats Brady Stone, Bryson Currie, and James Beaton for picking up their first Junior goal in their first Junior game.

Friday the Bearcats are in Bridgewater to face the South Shore Lumberjacks.

Saturday, Truro is at the RECC to face the Valley Wildcats – 7:00 pm.
