History

2010-11: Tanner Faith, Kootenay’s second-round pick in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft, appeared in four games with the Ice — making his WHL debut in November as a 15-year-old — and played for the Notre Dame Hounds midget team in Saskatchewan. He had no points and was an even plus/minus with 2 penalty minutes with the Ice. Faith scored 4 goals with 5 assists and 32 penalty minutes in 29 games for Notre Dame. He played for Team Saskatchewan in the Canada Winter Games with no points nor penalties in six games.

 

2011-12: Faith skated in 21 games for the midget team at Notre Dame in his second season with the Hounds. He scored 3 goals with 5 assists and 32 penalty minutes.

 

2012-13: Faith skated in 55 regular season games and five playoff contests for Kootenay in his first full WHL season. He scored 2 goals with 6 assists and was +1 with 35 penalty minutes. The Ice finished fifth in the Central Division and lost to first-place Edmonton in a first-round playoff series. Faith had no points and was minus-4 with 2 penalty minutes in the series.

 

2013-14: Faith opened the season with Kootenay before suffering a shoulder injury in October that kept him out most of the season. In 10 WHL games he scored 1 goal with 1 assist and was minus-1 with 9 penalty minutes. Listed among the players with “limited viewings” in the Central Scouting final rankings, Faith was selected by Minnesota in the fifth round (139th overall) of the 2014 NHL Draft.
