Bio

History: 

Junior Career

Torrie Jung's junior career began with Cowichan Valley and Nanaimo of the WHL as the youngster originally sought to pursue a scholarship in the NCAA. He appeared in 1 game in 2004-2005 for Nanaimo in a 2 minute relief appearance and the following season in 18 games with Cowichan Valley in, Jung went 5-11-0 with a 3.94 GAA and .901 save percentage. Despite receiving interest from schools like Yale, North Dakota, Princeton and Cornell, Jung eventually decided to forego his college elligibility and make the leap to major junior hockey. Although he was never selected in the WHL Bantam Draft, Jung quickly latched on with the Kelowna of the WHL where in 2006-2007 he served as backup to veteran Kristofer Westblum. Jung did not play for much of the first half of the season but got more experience as the season wore on eventually appearing in 33 games for the Rockets and posting an 8-15-7 record with 1 shutout, a 3.46 GAA and a .896 save percentage. At season's end Jung was rated the 24th best goaltending prospect in North America and he was selected in the 7th round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Lightning.

Professional Career

With only 54 appearances in the junior ranks between the BCHL and WHL over the past 3 seasons, expect Jung to need the experience two more seasons of junior before the Lightning can make a signing decision.
