The Calgary Canucks are proud to announce that Brett Pinder has enlisted and committed to attend the Royal Military College of Canada.
Pinder, a 19 year old, 5’10” forward, played in both the SJHL as well as the AJHL. In the 38 games played for the Canucks this season, Pinder had 9 goals and 9 assists, 3 of the 9 goals were game winners.
Brett’s desire to serve his country and his passion for hockey has earned himself the opportunity to play for the RMC Paladins of the CIS Ontario University Athletic Conference. The graduates of RMC have established a reputation of service and achievement throughout the world out of all proportion to their numbers. From the North West Campaign of 1885, through the South African War, the First and Second World Wars, Korea, the Persian Gulf, to the latest peace keeping operations the graduates of RMC have distinguished themselves in all aspects of Canadian military service. Ex-cadets have been similarly prominent in a wide variety of civilian professions.
“Pinder’s offensive skills and defensive minded play made him a very valuable asset in our team success this past season. The Canucks wish Brett the best of luck in his hockey career, and are honoured to have a former player enlisted to serve his country,” stated Canucks Coach Ryan Barrett.
