Vees add scoring touch

The Vees have added a player with a knack for scoring.

Forward Ryan McGuire has committed to Penticton for the 2020/21 season. 

“I’m extremely excited to be a part of such an amazing organization,” said McGuire. “I can’t wait for next season and I’m excited to get out to Penticton.”

The 17-year-old spent the past three seasons with Belmont Hill High School in the United States High School Hockey League. 

The six foot one, 185-pound forward played in 90 games through three seasons, compiling 36 goals and 41 assists for 77 points.

McGuire is committed to attend Colgate University in the fall of 2021. 

The McGuire name is a household one in hockey circles. Ryan’s father, Pierre, spent six seasons in National Hockey League organizations, and was a back-to-back Stanley Cup champion as a player with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991 and 1992.

Pierre also worked as a team scout and assistant coach with the Pens before spending two seasons with the Hartford Whalers as an assistant coach, assistant general manager and head coach.

Pierre McGuire is now a broadcaster with NBC Sports, where he has been since 2006.
