The Dawson Creek Rage has announced that goaltender Andrew Walsh has committed to Bemidji State University (WCHA) for next season.
A Dawson Creek native, Walsh, 20, has a 6-15-1 record in 24 appearances this season to compliment a 3.50 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage.
“This is a great accomplishment both for Andrew and our organization,” said Rage head coach Scott Robinson. “Andrew has earned this with his relentless work ethic throughout the year and is very deserving of this honor.”
Walsh is the first player in Rage history to secure a Division I scholarship.
“To have a local player earn our first scholarship is special,” Robinson added.
