I would like to first off congratulate Curtis Loik on landing an NCAA Div. 1 Scholarship to Penn State. Penticton now has a whopping 11 committed players on their roster! Kids, if you have a dream to go play NCAA Hockey, this has got to be one of your top choices for Jr. A Hockey. What an exceptional program Fred Harbinson has down there in Penticton. Not only do they have one of BC's premier Hockey arenas, they are also based out of one of Canada's nicest places to live. The Vees will be sending two(2) players to Quinnipiac, three(3) players to Minnesota State, and two to St. Cloud as well as Notre Dame. To see all of the leagues commitments, check out this link!
Vernon currently has 6 players listed as commited, including '95 born forward Riley Hunt, who committed to Harvard for the fall of 2014. Westside and Surrey currently have 5 commitments listed, while Salmon Arm, Powell River and Nanaimo all sit at 4. Impressive stats for not just these teams, but for the BCHL in general. Merritt, Coquitlam, and Alberni are currently the only 3 teams in the league without any players receiving NCAA/CIS commitments. That should change right away as I personally know one player on each of those teams that is capable of playing at that level and of achieving excellent marks. As an entity, the league has currently, 49 listed commitments.
Now that folks, IS SMART HOCKEY!
