Chiefs sign second-round pick Matt Leduc

The Spokane Chiefs, which open at home on Oct. 1 against the Tri-City Americans, have signed one of their top 2015 draft picks and another 2015 selection has been invited to a prestigious upcoming goalie camp.

Defenseman Matt Leduc has signed a standard player agreement to play for the Chiefs. Leduc, a 6-foot-5, 195-pound 16-year-old from Richmond, B.C., was one of the team’s two second-round picks in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft.

In other news, goaltending prospect Donovan Buskey, 16, of North Vancouver, B.C., has been invited with 15 others to attend the under-17 group at Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence Goaltending Camp June 9-11 in Calgary, Alberta.

Buskey, a third-round selection in the same Bantam draft as Leduc, posted one shutout in 24 appearances last season with the North Shore Winter Club Midget Elite A1 team.
