Outhouse most recently suited up at the Winnipeg Jets’ Rookie Showcase event in Belleville, Ont. where he had garnered an invite as an undrafted rookie. On Sept. 8 Outhouse stopped 20 shots for the Jets in a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens rookies.

On top of signing Outhouse, the Moose released its 2019 training camp roster, which includes Outhouse and another goaltender, six defencemen and 11 forwards.

All training camp on-ice sessions will take place at Bell MTS Iceplex in Winnipeg and are open to the public.

The Moose open their home schedule on Friday, Oct. 11 when they host the Toronto Marlies.
