Winnipeg, MB – The Winnipeg Blues announced on Monday that it has auto-protected two players: Ryder Ringor and Josh Filmon.
Ringor and Filmon are from Winnipeg.
Ringor – a five-foot-six, 150-pound forward – played the 2018-19 season with the OHA Mavericks Major Bantam of the Ontario East Bantam AAA Hockey League. In 30 regular season games, Ringor scored eight goals and 17 assists for 25 points. He added three goals and five points in five playoff games. The WHL’s Everett Silvertips selected Ringor in the 12th round of the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft.
Filmon – a 5’10, 118-pound forward- played 29 regular season games with Rink Hockey Academy Bantam Prep of the Canadian Sport School Hockey League during the 2018-19 campaign. He scored eight goals and added 20 assists for 28 points in those 29 games. Filmon added three goals and four points in three playoff games. The WHL’s Swift Current Broncos selected Filmon in the fourth round of the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft.
“We are very excited to add both Josh and Ryder to the Blues organization,” said Blues General Manager Taras McEwen. “Both players are skilled forwards that have bright futures in hockey.”
When a Manitoba Junior Hockey League team auto-protects a player, it means the club owns the playing rights to that player within the MJHL.
