Bombers Add Canadian Power Forward Ehrmantraut

by Bombers Staff

The Long Beach Bombers are proud to announce the signing of Canadian forward, Erik Ehrmantraut. The big left shot (6’2, 195lbs) hails from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Last season, he suited up for the Saskatoon Blazers U18 AAA team in the SMHL. Erik was born December 16, 1999.

Ehrmantraut started this season in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, with the Dauphin Kings. He has also played games in the Prairie Junior Hockey League, with the Saskatoon Quakers and the Saskatoon Royals. He had 4 points in 3 games played, in the PJHL. In 26 games, last season, Ehrmantraut recorded 3G-4A for the Blazers. The Saskatoon Blazers was once home to former Los Angeles Kings center, and Stanley Cup Champion, Jarret Stoll, and also to Fresno Monsters Head Coach, and former NHLer, Kevin Kaminski. Then, he played 9 games for the Saskatoon Steel AA team, registering 10G-8A, playing along side Cole Beckman (Fresno Monsters) and the Bombers’ own, Rhett Arnold. In total, last season, Ehrmantraut had a stat line of 40GP-14G-15A-104PIMs.

Long Beach goaltender, Rhett Arnold, described his former, and now current, teammate, “He’s a big kid and has a good shot. He has the skill to fit into our top-9, and might be a net-front option on the power play, because he’s a big body and is good with the puck. He’s a good guy, off the ice.”

Bombers Head Coach and General Manager, Chris White, commented, “We are very excited to get Erik down to Long Beach, and to insert him into our talented group of forwards. The timing couldn’t be any better, as we are in a very difficult stretch of games, with 9-straight against the Valencia Flyers and Ontario Avalanche. Erik is going to add some size and physicality to our group, and gives us some much needed depth at the forward position."
