The 21-year-old from Williams Lake B.C. now heads to an uncertain hockey future; he has the option of turning pro or going to the collegiate route.

While Outhouse went through the NHL draft twice without being selected, Griffen’s coaches and teammates believes he will get a shot at the pro level in North America, and despite not being billed as the prototype 6’3” netminder that the NHL looks for.

The Royals brass believe there’s a need for a goaltender of Outhouse’s skill-set in the pros.
