Selkirk College adds netminder Chris Hurry from KIJHL's Summerland Steam
Thursday, August 16, 2012 - Submitted by Selkirk College Men's Hockey
The Selkirk College Saints Men’s Hockey program is pleased to announce a commitment from goaltender Chris Hurry (Summerland, B.C.) to attend Selkirk College and compete for the Saints beginning in the 2012/13 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season.
Hurry spent the past three seasons in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, splitting time between the North Okanagan Knights and Summerland Steam. He played for both clubs during their inaugural KIJHL seasons and totalled 18 wins and 47 losses over 70 games.
He averaged 45 shots per game last season for the Steam and saw an average of 38 shots per game over his junior career.
Hurry is the third goaltender to commit to the Saints this offseason, joining Major Junior and SJHL veteran Alex Sirard and former VIJHL all-star Stephen Wolff.
"I’m very pleased that Chris has chosen to commit to Selkirk College and be a part of our team,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.
"His addition, along with Alex and Stephen, gives us tremendous depth and talent in goal. My preference is always to have three capable goaltenders that can compete and push each other over the course of a season, and we feel we have exactly that with these new additions."
"I’m excited to join a great program like Selkirk College with all of the talent that they’ve brought in for the upcoming season," says Hurry, who describes himself as a big goaltender who takes up space and plays his angles well.
"I’m looking forward to beginning my courses to become a sports physiotherapist and working towards winning a BCIHL league championship."
Also committed to Selkirk College for the fall are forwards Logan Proulx (Cowichan Valley, BCHL), Thomas Hardy (Aldergrove, PIJHL), Jackson Garrett (Comox Valley, VIJHL), Stephen Saretsky (Wellington, OJHL), Scott Swiston (Creston, KIJHL), Connor McLaughlin (Fernie, KIJHL), Cody Fidgett (Delta, PIJHL), Matthew Luongo (Aldergrove, PIJHL), Cole Thomson (Kerry Park, VIJHL), John Proctor (Delta, PIJHL), Mason Spear (Beaver Valley, KIJHL), Connor Stephens (Victoria, VIJHL), Brodie Gibbon (Oceanside, VIJHL) and Jared Seutter (Chase, KIJHL) and defencemen Brett Kipling (Melville, SJHL), Dylan Smith (Richmond, PIJHL), Kam Crawford (Osoyoos, KIJHL), , Lucas Hildebrand (Revelstoke, KIJHL) and Mark Strachan (Kimberley, KIJHL).
