Kirkland Lake GoldMiners Head Coach & General Manager Trevor Ritchie has added some size and bite to the blueline group, adding 6’3″ 200lb Beckett Patten.
Patten , from Bozeman, Montana comes to the GoldMiners from Dell’s Ducks of the USPHL Premier Division, where last season he scored 6 times and added 14 assists in 39 games, to go with 133 pims.
The 19 year old Patten brings offence from the blueline, 2 seasons ago, with Bozeman of the NA3HL, he had 12 goals and 24 assists in 32 games, with 84 pims.
Last year, Patten was a teammate of new GoldMiner Stone Stezl with Dell’s Ducks.
Coach Ritchie says, “Beckett is a big physical defenceman, who’ll keep opposing forwards honest, and we expect him to show off his offensive skills as well.”
