(ISN) – Duncan, BC – The Cowichan Capitals are extremely proud to announce graduating Captain Kyle Horsman has accepted an NCAA Division I scholarship to Robert Morris University.
Committing to play for the Colonials starting this fall, Horsman is coming off a career best season putting up 18 goals and 17 assists while logging key minutes in all situations.
“I’m extremely excited and proud to have the opportunity to play Division I hockey at Robert Morris,” said Horsman.
The Sechelt, BC native Captained the Capitals for the past two seasons and his work ethic and determination made him a feared and respected opponent across the BCHL.
“I can’t thank everyone who’s helped me along the way enough, especially the Cowichan Capitals organization. This really shows that after four years of playing in the BCHL hard work does pay off. It’s a good feeling knowing you are helping pave the way for younger players coming to the Cowichan Valley in the coming years.”
Starting his BCHL career with the Trail Smoke Eaters in the 2011-12 season before arriving in Cowichan the following year, Horsman saw his offensive numbers improve year after year along with his ability to be a force in the defensive zone.
“The Colonials are adding a tremendous young man to their program as Kyle offers a rare blend of size, skill, character, and a work ethic second to none,” said Capitals Head Coach and General Manager Bob Beatty.
“We wish Kyle all the best and thank him for his outstanding contributions over the past three seasons.”
