Quesnel's Holst commits to Div. I North Dakota for 2010/11 season

Press Release

The The British Columbia Hockey League's Quesnel Millionaires are pleased to announce that graduating forward Taylor Holst has accepted a scholarship to attend the University of North Dakota and suit up for the NCAA Division I Fighting Sioux.

The 20-year old Assistant Captain recorded better than a point-a-game in his final BCHL season, scoring 27 goals and adding 30 assists in 55 regular season games. He then contributed 14 points in 12 playoff games, helping the Mills to a first-round playoff series victory over the Salmon Arm SilverBacks before bowing out to eventual RBC Cup champions Vernon.

Holst will begin working towards a Business degree at North Dakota and is very excited with the opportunity to join the Sioux, who have 7 NCAA titles to their name. Holst would like to thank Coach Glen Watson, and Assistant Coach Brian Kozak for all their help and for giving him the responsibility as one of the leaders on the team.

Holst would also like to thank everyone in the Millionaires organization for all their help and he added that he wouldn’t have gotten to where he is today if it wasn’t for the season he had in Quesnel this past year.

The entire Millionaires organization would like to congratulate Taylor and his family on this great accomplishment.
