(ISN) – The Nanaimo Clippers are pleased to announce that goaltender Billy Faust has committed to join the University of Vermont Catamounts in the fall of 2012.

“We are very proud of Billy,” said Clippers head coach Mike Vandekamp. “He has been a solid member of our hockey club both on and off the ice and is very deserving of this opportunity.

“The University of Vermont will be a great place for Billy to develop as a player while obtaining a top notch education.”

Faust, a native of Alta Loma, Calif. has compiled a 20-21 record this year and has a 2.88 goals-against average to go along with a .912 save percentage and four shutouts. In 68 BCHL games over the last three seasons, he is 32-28.

At Vermont, Faust will join his former teammate Kyle Mountain who he played with last season in Penticton. The Catamounts play in the NCAA Division I Hockey East conference and have produced current NHLers Martin St. Louis and Tim Thomas.
