FORMER ALLSTAR DEFENSEMAN KURT GOSSELIN NAMED WCHA
ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
November 3, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are proud to announce that former Bulldogs’ standout defenseman Kurt Gosselin has been named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) Rookie of the Week.
Gosselin, a freshman defenseman for the University of Alabama-Huntsville Chargers, played in his first two collegiate games this weekend. Gosselin tied for the WCHA lead with a four-point weekend (2g, 2a) to lead Alabama Huntsville to a weekend sweep at Lake Superior State. The rookie from Brighton, Mich. was one of four freshmen nationally to have a four-point week (one of three who did so in two games), scoring twice Friday and tallying two helpers Saturday. He brought UAH back from a 4-2 deficit in his debut Friday, registering both Chargers goals in the third period (at the 4:00 and 8:46 mark, respectively) to tie the contest and set UAH up for a 5-4, overtime victory. Saturday, Gosselin chipped in a pair of assists while helping UAH to its first shutout since March 12, 2010
Gosselin spent three seasons with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs and upon graduating from the BCHL, finished with most career goals by an Alberni Valley Bulldogs defenseman.
In the UAH Chargers two-win weekend, former Bulldogs goalie Matt Larose was also nominated for WCHA Defensive Player of the Week.
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs congratulate Kurt on an outstanding NCAA debut weekend and will be closely following his progress at the Division 1 level.
