Gosselin commits to Div. 1 Chargers

Alberni Valley Bulldogs’ veteran defenceman Kurt Gosselin has committed to the University of Alabama-Huntsville Chargers.

Alberni Valley Bulldogs’ veteran defenceman Kurt Gosselin has committed to the NCAA Division 1 program of the University of Alabama-Huntsville Chargers.

Alabama-Huntsville plays in the 10-team Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA).

Gosselin is entering his third season with the Bulldogs organization. So far in 14 games this season, Gosselin has scored five goals and added 12 assists, for a league-leading 1.2 points per game among all B.C. Hockey League defensemen.

Ten of Gosselin’s 17 points have come on the power play, including two power play goals and two game-winning goals.

With the start Gosselin has had, several NCAA Division 1 programs were inquiring about him, Bulldogs coaching staff said.

“The Alberni Valley Bulldogs would like to congratulate the UAH Chargers for landing a top-quality player and person.

“We are very excited for Kurt after his three hard working years with the Bulldogs,” said head coach and general manager Kevin Willison.

“We look forward to tracking his progress with the UAH Chargers commencing 2015-16.

“Kurt has been a great addition to our team and has worked very hard on and off the ice to make this opportunity happen,” added Willison.

Gosselin, needless to say, is excited about his commitment to UAH. “I really look forward to going to such a great program,” he said.

Gosselin will join former Bulldogs goalie Matt Larose on the Chargers.
