He led Princeton defencemen in scoring this past season, netting three goals and 17 assists over the course of 30 games.

During his junior year (2017-18), he led the nation’s defencemen in scoring with 1.06 points per game and last month, heย became Princeton’s all-time record holder in assists by a defenceman, breaking a record that’s stood since 1986.

“Josh had an outstanding collegiate career at Princeton,” said Benning, in a statement. “He has good vision and playmaking ability and can contribute in all three zones. We’re excited to see him play at the professional level.”

Prior to skating with Princeton University, the Alberta native spent a season the BCHL’s Merritt Centennials.

He also attended the Canucks development camp last summer as an invitee.
