Son of NHLer joins Vees

The Penticton Vees have nabbed a new forward for the 2019-20 season. 

American Tristan Amonte, born in 2000, has spent the last season with the Youngstown Phantoms after the previous four years at Thayer Academy. 

He is the son of long-time NHL player Tony Amonte, who racked up 1,174 games between 1991 and 2007 with the New York Rangers, Chicago Blackhawks, Phoenix Coyotes, Philadelphia Flyers and Calgary Flames.

Vees fans may remember Tristan's older brother Ty, who spent one season in Penticton in 2016-17, scoring 17 goals and 20 assists to help the Vees on their way to the Fred Page Cup. 

Tristan is a six-foot-tall, right-shot forward who scored 23 goals and 93 assists over 121 games at Thayer Academy. 

He will join his new Vees teammates at training camp in mid-August.
