The Selkirk College Saints Men’s Hockey program is pleased to announce a commitment from

forward Cole Thomson (Duncan, B.C.) to attend Selkirk College and compete for the Saints

beginning in the 2012/13 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season.

 

Thomson joins Selkirk College following two seasons with the Vancouver

Island Junior Hockey League’s Kerry Park Islanders. The 5-foot-11 centre

was the Islanders’ captain and leading scorer during the 2011/12 season,

scoring 21 goals and netting 52 points in just 35 games. He added

another 10 points in 12 postseason games while helping Kerry Park to the

second round of this season’s VIJHL playoffs.

 

The 20-year old has finished in the Top-10 amongst VIJHL scorers the

past two seasons, ranking sixth in 2010/11 with 56 points and seventh in

2011/12 with 52 points. His career totals with the Islanders include 45

goals, 108 points and122 penalty minutes in 78 games played.

“I’m excited to commit to Selkirk and the opportunity to meet some new

people and take the next steps towards my future career,” says Thomson,

who plans to study Business at Selkirk. “I’ve heard great things about

the college and I’m looking forward to the level of hockey and being

part of a winning program.”

 

Thomson joins Aldergrove Kodiaks forward Thomas Hardy and Richmond

Sockeyes defenceman Dylan Smith as Selkirk’s third commitment for the

2012/13 season.

 

Additional player announcements will be made in the coming weeks.
