THUNDER BAY – The Lakehead Thunderwolves have their third goaltender.

The OUA men’s hockey team announced former Thunder Bay North Star puck-stopper Brock Aiken has agreed to join the team this year.

He’ll compete for playing time with holdover Nic Renyard, a former NCAA transfer, and fellow newcomer Blake Weyrick of Santa Monica, Calif, who spent three seasons with the U.S. National Development program and the past two campaigns at Canisius College in Buffalo.

Aiken, 21, was 23-2-0 with a 2.12 goals against average and .931 save percentage for the North Stars in 2018-19, leading them to the Dudley Hewitt Cup.

“I’m excited to be home and playing for the Thunderwolves,” Aiken said in a release issued by the team. “I can’t wait to get the season started and help contribute to team’s success.”
