Denton Mateychuk has officially committed to the Moose Jaw Warriors.

The team announced Monday that the 14-year-old product of Dominion City, Man. signed a standard player agreement with the Western Hockey League squad, officially bringing the talented first-round Bantam pick into the Tribe fold.

“We are very pleased that Denton and his family have committed to the Warriors and the WHL for both his hockey and academic goals,” said Warriors general manager Alan Millar. “Denton is a dynamic, offensive defenceman who plays a smart, competitive game. We look forward to his future with our hockey club.”

Mateychuk – 5-foot-10 and 173 pounds – most recently suited up for the Eastman Selects in the Winnipeg Bantam AAA League scoring 23 goals to go along with 61 points in 36 games during 2018-19 campaign.

“We are very excited to have a quality player and person like Denton join our program.  He brings a lot of excitement to the organization and to the fans with his dynamic play,” said Warriors assistant general manager Jason Ripplinger.

Mateychuk was in Moose Jaw last weekend along with other Warrior prospects for the organization’s Development Camp. He’ll be back in the Friendly City in August for the Warriors 2019 training camp.
