Penticton, BC: The Penticton Vees announced today that they have received a commitment from 2000-born forward Tristan Amonte for the 2019-20 season.
Amonte, from Norwell, Massachusetts, spent last season with the Youngstown Phantoms after the previous four years at Thayer Academy.
The right-shot forward played 121 games at Thayer over those four seasons, racking up 23 goals and 93 assists.
Amonte is the son of long-time NHL player Tony Amonte, who skated in 1,174 games from 1991-2007 with the New York Rangers, Chicago Blackhawks, Phoenix Coyotes, Philadelphia Flyers and Calgary Flames.
Tristan’s older brother Ty spent one season with the Vees in 2016-17, scoring 17 goals and 20 assists to help the Vees claim the Fred Page Cup. He finished his sophomore season at Boston University this past year.
The six-foot forward will join his teammates for training camp in mid August.
