Cox inks pro deal in ECHL

South Surrey WHL veteran signs first pro contract with Quad City Mallards.

With his junior-hockey career having come to an end earlier this month, South Surrey’s Trevor Cox will now hit the ice at the professional level.

Cox, a 20-year-old Semiahmoo Minor Hockey alum who recent wrapped up five seasons in the Western Hockey League – with both the Medicine Hat Tigers and Vancouver Giants – signed last week with the Illinois-based Quad City Mallards of the ECHL.

Through two games with the pro club – which plays two rungs below the National Hockey League – Cox had no points.

Though he’s yet to hit the scoresheet at the pro level, Cox had little trouble doing so in the WHL.

This past season, he scored 14 goals and had 53 points in 50 games with the Giants, who acquired him from Medicine Hat early in the season. In six games with the Tigers prior to the trade, he had eight points.

The 2014/15 season was his best, as he racked up 109 points in just 69 games for the Tigers.
