UNB wins U Sports National Championship

Powered by Ex-WHL players including Joe Gatenby (Kamloops, Kelowna), Rylan Parenteau (Prince Albert, Tri-City), and Mark Rassel (Medicine Hat) the University of New Brunswick won their 3rd national championship in four years 4-2 over UAB.

Savoie commits to the University of Denver

Widely believed to be the top prospect in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft, St. Albert, Alberta native Matthew Savoie announced that he had committed to the University of Denver. He stated on social media that he would be playing for them starting in 2021/22.

After being denied exceptional status in the WHL, as reported here on DubNetwork, Savoie’s path for the 2018-19 season is unknown at this time.

Since he will not be allowed to play a full season as a 15-year-old in the WHL, his options could include going to the USHL, a natural fit for someone on a path to the NCAA.

This commitment also puts into question whether whichever team has the top pick in the Bantam Draft, decides to still select Savoie.

Evanoff went 19-10-2-1 and posted a 2.62 GAA and 0.916 save percentage.
