Cougar’s Josh Wyatt to Attend Weber State


Victoria (ISN) – The Victoria Cougar’s announced today that forward Josh Wyatt has committed to playing hockey for Weber State University in 2012-13.

Weber State University is located in Ogden, Utah and has an enrollment of over 24,000 students.

“We are excited that Josh has the opportunity to begin his schooling at a first rate institution and will be able to continue his playing career at the collegiate level,” Cougars head coach Mark Van Helvoirt said. “Josh was an excellent Cougar and has certainly earned this opportunity. We are so proud of him and wish him the best of luck.”

The 6’2, 185 lb. forward just completed his fourth season with Victoria.

In 127 regular season games, Wyatt amassed 44 goals and 66 assists for 110 points.

“I would like to thank the Cougars organization for an amazing past four years. They not only helped me grow as a player but as a better person as well,” Wyatt said. “From the flawless coaching to the tight knit family of players, the Cougars have been by far my best hockey experience and I am proud to say I will always be a Cougar.”

On a hockey scholarship, Wyatt will be studying law enforcement/criminal justice.

This announcement, according to Van Helvoirt, is the first of several to follow in the coming weeks.
