The Kingston Frontenacs announced via Twitter (@KingstonFronts) on Monday that the club has added overage goaltender Cole McLaren to its roster through waivers.
A 20-year-old from Valley, Nova Scotia, McLaren appeared in seven games with the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads this season, going 2-4-1 with a 4.39 goals-against average and .882 save percentage. The 6-foot-2 netminder played parts of four seasons in Halifax, posting an impressive 16-2-1 record with a 1.81 goals-against average and .930 save percentage in 2018-19 when the Mooseheads hosted the Memorial Cup as QMJHL Finalists.
Originally an eighth round pick by the Mooseheads in the 2016 QMJHL Draft, McLaren owns a career record of 26-20-4 with a 3.25 goals-against average and .899 save percentage over 62 regular season outings.
The Frontenacs featured the goaltending duo of overage graduate Christian Propp and 2001-born Ryan Dugas to close out the 2019-20 season.
