The Fort McMurray Oil Barons are pleased to announce that 20 year old goaltender Brody Hoffman (Wilkie, Saskatchewan) has accepted a scholarship to attend the University of Vermont for the 2012-2013 season. The Vermont Catamounts play in the Hockey East Conference in the NCAA.
Brody was acquired in the off-season in order to bring a veteran presence between the pipes and solidify the goaltending position. His 20-4-2 record, along with 3 shutouts, 1.99 GAA, and 0.924 save percentage have done just that.
More importantly, Brody's commitment off the ice is a great example for all the younger players. His dedication, work ethic, and his constant willingness to improve make him a valuable member of the Oil Barons team.
The Oil Barons organization would like to congratulate Brody and his family and wish him all the best in his future endeavours both academically and athletically.
