The Grande Prairie Storm of the Alberta Junior Hockey League are proud to announce the signing of 2002 forward Carter Myrol and 2002 forward Brett Meerman.
Carter Myrol is a 6’0″ power forward from Edmonton and played for the Northern Alberta Xtreme last season, winning the CSSHL Championship and contributing 12 goals, 16 assists for 28 points. Gifted not only on the ice but in the classroom as well, Carter was also named to the Midget Prep Division All-Academic Team. Myrol has played 2 games in the AJHL with Spruce Grove.
Head Coach & Assistant General Manager, Matt Keillor had this to say about Myrol:
“We are excited to add Carter to our line-up. Carter was a highly sought-after prospect for us this summer so when he became available, it was a an easy decision to add him to our strong 2001/02 core group of players. Carter will complement our speed and add size within our forward group.”
Brett Meerman is a native of Blackfalds, Alberta, and will also be joining the Storm for the 2019-2020 season. Brett is a very dynamic offensive player, finishing last season with 15 goals, 30 assists, 45 points in the Alberta Midget Hockey League for the Red Deer Chiefs. Brett’s 45 points was 4th best in the AMHL and he was named a AMHL Second Team All-Star. In 2017, Meerman was selected in the 5th round (110) to the Medicine Hat Tigers after recording 33 goals, 34 assists, 67 points for the Red Deer Rebels of the AMBHL.
“Brett is very exciting to watch” says Head Coach & Assistant General Manager, Matt Keillor. “Brett’s offensive skill set and high level of intelligence makes him a very dangerous player. He is a proven point producer at every level he has played, even as a 15-year-old playing in the AMHL recording 25 points. He is very tenacious and always wants the puck on his stick.”
Both playes will make their debuts for the Storm tonight against Okotoks at the Coke Center
