April 4, 2014 (ISN) – The Princeton Posse are proud to announce that Andrew Stack has committed to TRU (Thompson Rivers University; Kamloops, BC) for the 2014-2015 season.
The 5’11”, 195 lbs. forward from West Vancouver collected his 100th and 101st career KIJHL point in his final game of the season. In 134 career games, Stack amassed 36 goals, 65 assists for 101 points for the Summerland Steam, Osoyoos Coyotes, Kimberly Dynamiters and the Princeton Posse.
Stack was acquired by the Posse in early December as a player to provide some offense and leadership for the Posse, and continue to develop his overall game under the Posse coaching staff for the college level. Stack enjoyed his career best points per game in Princeton (1.0 PPG), and as fitness devotee, his physical game and overall guidance for the young team proved to be additionally invaluable.
“Playing for the Posse was an exciting, and enjoyable experience for me, and Princeton was a great place to finish my junior career” commented Andrew Stack moments after signing his letter of commitment. He continued, “Big thank you to the town, fans, coaching staff, volunteers, and my teammates for providing me with incredible support, memories, and opportunities. I’m forever proud to be a member of the Posse!”
General Manager and Head Coach Bill Rotheisler stated “a very well-earned congratulations to Andrew on his commitment to TRU. I cannot say enough about how high the level of respect I, and we, have for Andrew coming in as a 20 year old and buying in with both feet to the program and truly becoming part of our family.”
Stack joins G Scott Legault as committed BCIS players for next season. Rotheisler commented, “It is so important that these players are afforded opportunities to continue their playing career. We have two more players (Schmidt, Kubis) who had college hockey opportunities as well but chose another path. Whether it is junior A or college, we want to move our player’s on. Not only did they come back to play with us for their 20 year old year, but they came back fully committed to the program. That’s what a hockey family does, we take care of each other.”
