Panthers Sign Goaltender Alexander Kong
Friday, September 22, 2017 - Submitted by Port Moody Panthers

The Port Moody Panthers today announced the signing of veteran goaltender Alexander Kong.

Kong, who's from Burnaby, didn't play junior or minor hockey during the 2016-17 season due to injury. He did spend some time as an assistant coach for the Burnaby Minor Hockey PeeWee Tier 1 team.

The 20-year-old played one game - a 4-2 win over North Vancouver - in the Pacific Junior Hockey League during the 2015-16 season with Grandview before seeing his season end with an injury. He finished with a 2.00 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage.

"Alex has been skating with us for quite a while now, and showed that he definitely has the skill and ability to excel at our level," said Panthers GM Peter Zerbinos. "We think Alex brings a veteran presence to our goaltending position and look forward to he and Thomas Watts working together for the remainder of the season." 

Kong split the 2014-15 season between the Abbotsford Pilots and Summerland of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League. In 13 games with the Pilots, he went 6-5-0 with a 2.34 GAA, a .927 save percentage, and one shutout. We was 3-1-0 with the Steam, posting a 2.22 GAA and a .902 SV%.

With the addition of Kong, the Panthers have released goaltender Michael Lauriente. The 17-year-old was 0-2-0 this season along with a 3.19 GAA and a .900 save percentage.

2017-18 is the Panthers 12th season as Port Moody's local junior hockey team. The Panthers are run by a dedicated team of investors and volunteers.
