The Victoria Grizzlies are proud to announce another member of the club has committed to an NCAA institution.
Rookie defenceman Mitch Meek has accepted an offer and will play for the Clarkson University Golden Knights
is very exciting news and one of the primary focuses and objectives of
our collective efforts," said Grizzlies head coach and general manager
Bill Bestwick. "These opportunities are priceless and do not happen by fluke or chance. I am confident there will be many more to follow."
Meek is one of the youngest players in the BCHL, having just turned 16
in August. He is currently sidelined with an injury but has two goals
and two assists in 17 games this season.
"This is a great
sign for our hockey club that teams at the higher levels are recognizing
and acknowledging the Grizzlies for their commitment and development of
student athletes," said Bestwick.
This commitment is the
fourth by a current BCHLer to Clarkson as James De Haas and Bryan Sinz
of the Penticton Vees and Tyler Briggs of the West Kelowna Warriors are
also committed to the Golden Knights.
Clarkson competes in
the NCAA's Division I Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference against the
likes of Harvard, Yale, Union and Princeton.
