Cooper Blaine was an all-star with the Vincent Massey Vikings.

Graduating Vincent Massey Vikings goalie Cooper Blaine is taking his game south of the border.

The goaltender has signed with the Wichita Junior Thunder of the Junior A Tier 3 Western States Hockey League.

Blaine played in 23 games overall for the Vikings last season, going 14-9 with a 2.25 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage. The 18-year-old played in the WHSHL all-star game and the Manitoba graduating all-star game.

"Cooper is a bigger goalie with good fundamentals and will come in and compete for the starting job this year," Thunder coach Rob Weingartner said in a release. "We expect a lot of competition amongst our players in all positions and I am happy to have him on board with us."
