Swift Current, Sask. – The Swift Current Broncos announced today they have signed 2005-born forward Tyson Yaremko to a Western Hockey League Standard Player Agreement. He was drafted 68th overall in the 2020 WHL Prospects Draft.
Yaremko, from Saskatoon, is playing for the Saskatoon Blazers in the Saskatchewan U18 League this season and leads the team in goals with 18 while adding 11 assists for 29 points. His 18 goals rank him second in the SMAAAHL.
“Tyson has been a consistent offensive contributor for the Blazers this season,” said Broncos travelling scout Pete Cockburn. “He has picked up his level of play defensively and has been counted on to score timely goals when needed.”
“I am very happy for Tyson and his family,” said Broncos interim general manager Chad Leslie. “Tyson has worked hard on his 200-foot game and continues to score in a variety of ways that we feel will translate to the next level. We’re very happy to have Tyson and his family be part of the Broncos organization.”
Yaremko becomes the eighth member of the Broncos 2020 WHL Prospects Draft class to sign with the team joining Brady Birnie, Rylan Gould, Grayson Burzynski, Liam Saxberg, Van Eger, Connor Gabriel and Joey Rocha.
