Vees get commitment from high scoring forward

O'Brien headed to Penticton

The Penticton Vees will soon have another high scoring O'Brien in the fold.

Forward Devlin O’Brien will suit up for the team for the 2020/21 season.

This past season, Penticton was led in scoring by first round draft pick Jay O'Brien, no relation.

Devlin O'Brien spent the last two seasons with the renowned St. Andrew’s College program in eastern Canada.

The five foot 10, 174-pound forward totalled 72 goals and 63 assists for 135 points in 111 games played at St. Andrew’s in the Canadian Athletic High School League. 

O’Brien finished fourth in team scoring this past season, registering 42 goals and 69 points in 56 games.

“I’m extremely excited to play for the Penticton Vees next season,” said O’Brien, “After visiting Penticton and meeting with the coaching staff, I knew that this was the perfect fit for me. I’m looking forward to contributing to the Vees and helping the team compete for a national championship next year.”

The Toronto, Ontario native took a leadership role this season, wearing an ‘A’ on his sweater as one of the team’s assistant captains.

He is set to attend Merrimack College in the fall of 2021.
