Wade Johnson has committed to playing hockey for Keyano College in 2015-16.
Keyano College is located in Fort McMurray, Alberta and has an enrollment of more than 2,800 full-time students and over 13,000 part-time students.
“Wade played four tremendous years for us and will go down as one of the best to wear a Cougars jersey,” Cougars head coach Mark Van Helvoirt said. “We got the chance to watch Wade grow into a great hockey player and an outstanding young man.”
The five-foot-eleven, 185-pound forward recently completed his fourth and final season with Victoria.
In 166 regular season games, Johnson amassed 75 goals and 95 assists for 170 points.
Learning to be an effective player in the highly-competitive Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference will be no easy task for someone coming out of Junior B but Van Helvoirt sees experience prevailing.
“All of Wade’s experience with the Cougars and all the big games he has played in will no doubt help him make the jump. I have no doubt that that Wade will develop into an impact player at that level, just like he did with us,” Van Helvoirt said.
The Cougars would like to thank Johnson for all his hard work on and off the ice and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
