Bruins sign prospect

The Chilliwack Bruins have signed 15-year-old defenceman Keegan Kanzig to a standard Western Hockey League contract.

Kanzig was chosen by the Bruins with the seventh overall selection in the 2010 WHL bantam draft.

The hulking six-foot-five and 205 pound blueliner spent last season with the Fort Saskatchewan bantam AAA squad, scoring eight goals and adding 56 penalty minutes while leading his crew to within one win of the Alberta bantam AAA championship.

“We’re really pleased to have Keegan join our organization,” said Bruins general manager and head coach Marc Habscheid. “We feel that Keegan has a chance to be a key part of our team in the future and we look forward to working with him to help him reach his full potential.”

Kanzig is the fourth first-round pick in Chilliwack Bruins franchise history. Ryan Howse was the team’s first first-rounder in 2006, followed by Kevin Sundher (2007), Mitch Topping (2008) and Steven Hodges (2009).

Kanzig will attend training camp in August.
