The Power Dodge Estevan Bruins added a familiar name to the roster Tuesday.
The team added former Western Hockey League player Tristyn DeRoose, 19, who was recently released by the Moose Jaw Warriors. The Ceylon-born DeRoose signed with the Bruins in 2016 before embarking on a WHL career that took him to the Vancouver Giants and the Moose Jaw Warriors. He played 108 regular season games in the WHL, scoring five goals and eight assists for 13 points and picked up 147 penalty minutes. He also played in nine playoff games, scoring a goal last season with Moose Jaw.
He has a family connection to the Bruins, with his older brother Darcy having spent 136 games of his Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League career here in parts of five seasons between 2011-2016. Darcy graduated and moved on to the University of Calgary for a season when his Bruin career was over.
Tristyn DeRoose is expected to be in the lineup Wednesday when the La Ronge Ice Wolves visit Affinity Place. Game time is 7 p.m.
