he Selkirk College Saints Men’s

Hockey program is pleased to announce a commitment from forward Thomas

Hardy (Surrey, B.C.) to attend Selkirk College and compete for the

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

season.

Hardy is a veteran of the British Columbia and Pacific International

Junior Hockey Leagues, where he has suited up in 176 games over four

seasons. Hardy led all PIJHL skaters in goals (with 33) and points (73)

during the 2011/12 regular season as a member of the Aldergrove Kodiaks.

The 6-foot-1 winger spent the 2010/11 season primarily with the BCHL’s

Quesnel Millionaires, where he tallied 17 points in 33 games as a

19-year old. He has also spent time with the Junior ‘A’ Coquitlam

Express and Merritt Centennials, and totalled 26 points in 65 career

BCHL games.

Hardy has also spent parts of four seasons with Aldergrove, where he is

the franchise’s all-time leader in goals and points. His career totals

in the PIJHL include 73 goals and 168 points in 113 games played.

“I’m looking forward to being a part of the Saints hockey program,” says

Hardy, who will study Business at Selkirk. “I’m excited to go back to

the small town feeling that I had throughout my years of junior hockey

and I’ve heard great things about the school and the community.”

“I consider myself to be an offensive player who sees the ice well and

finishes my scoring opportunities,” he explains, when asked to break

down his game. “I also take pride in being defensively sound and playing

at both ends of the rink.”

Hardy is Selkirk’s first commitment for the 2012/13 season. Additional

player announcements will be made in the coming weeks.
