Selkirk Saints continue to add to the roster

Nitehawks defenceman Arie Postmus will bring his talents to Selkirk College

The Selkirk Saints have secured a commitment from defenceman Arie Postmus for the 2013-14 BCIHL season.

The reigning BCIHL champion Selkirk College Saints Men’s Hockey team is taking shape for next season with the announcement of another defenceman to the roster.

The Saints have secured a commitment from 21-year-old Arie Postmus to compete for the Saints beginning in the 2013/14 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season.

“Arie is a mobile, puck-moving defenceman who will fit in nicely with the style of game that we play,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois in a press release. “He’s been a key piece of a top-end program in the KIJHL and gone through the experience of being a leader and contributor to a championship team, which is important to us. I look forward to Arie developing into a productive and important player at the college level.”

The of Fruitvale, B.C., native is coming off three seasons with the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League’s Beaver Valley Nitehawks, where he finished second on the Nitehawks in scoring by defencemen last season with 23 points in 50 games, adding another six points in 13 playoff games.

Postmus played a total of 183 games for Beaver Valley, notching 18 goals, 70 assists and 233 minutes in the box.

Postmus plans to enroll in Selkirk’s Business Administration program.

“I’m excited to be able to play close to home and be a part of the team’s new winning tradition,” said Postmus. “I’m going to focus on getting really good grades and working hard every day to help the team capture another championship.”

Postmus is the third defenceman and seventh player overall to commit to the Saints for the 2013/14 season. He joins forwards Darnell Dyck (Langley, BCHL) and Garrett Kucher (Osoyoos, KIJHL), defencemen Stefan Gonzales (Aldergrove, PJHL) and Ryan Procyshyn (Delta, PJHL) and goaltenders Myles Hovdebo (LaRonge, SJHL) and Marcus Beesley (Nelson, KIJHL).
