HUMBOLDT — A new goalie from B.C. has been added to the Humboldt Broncos’ stable.

Tanner Marshall, a 20 year old from Kelowna, B.C., has been traded to the Broncos from the B.C. Hockey League’s Merritt Centennials for a player development fee.

The trade adds experience in Junior A-level goaltending for the Broncos, as Marshall has played 69 games over three seasons at that level.

In the 2019-20 season, Marshall had 1,132 shots made against him over 30 games. He stopped 998 of them, a save percentage of 0.882.

The season before, with the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Brooks Bandits, he had a .925 save percentage over 12 games, stopping 196 out of 212 shots. That year, the Bandits won the 2019 Centennial Cup, given to the top Junior A team in the country. Marshall did not play in the tournament, as the Bandits opted to use only one of their three goalies, Pierce Charleson.

He also played 27 games over two seasons with the B.C. Hockey League’s Trail Smoke Eaters.

With the trade made, the Broncos have five goalies on their roster.

Brendan Forman, 19, had a .900 save percentage over 33 games with the Broncos, his first season in Junior A hockey.

Michael Harroch, 19, had a .906 save percentage over 21 games with the Broncos, also his first season in Junior A hockey.

Charles-Anthony Barbeau, 18, had a save percentage of .907 playing 13 games with the Canadian Sport School Hockey League’s Westlake Bourget College U18 with the last season, and .921 playing eight games with the East Coast Elite League U18’s Westlake Bourget College U18.

Brett Mirwald, 16, had a .920 save percentage over 31 games with the Saskatoon Blazers U18 AAA and a .953 for the two games he played with the Broncos.
