KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has signed 2004-born forward Dwayne Jean to a WHL Standard Player Agreement.
“Dwayne is the perfect example of a non-drafted, smaller player who has continued to work and persevere,” said Americans Assistant General Manager and Head Scout Roy Stasiuk. “He has grown significantly in the last 18 months, so his new found size coupled with his existing work ethic and skating speed makes him an exciting addition to our roster.”
Jean, from Edmonton, Alta., spent the 2020-21 season with the U18 CAC Canadians in the AEHL U18, scoring twice and adding seven assists in six games. In 2019-20 he recorded 15 goals and 20 assists in 35 games with OHA Edmonton at the CSSHL U16 level.
“Playing in the WHL has been a goal of mine for a long time,” said Jean. “I’m really excited for this opportunity. It’s an honour to sign with a great organization like the Americans.
“The players and staff have been really welcoming and I’ve had a great time at training camp. I am thankful to be here and looking forward to my future in Tri-City.”
