Charlie Russell Commits to Clarkson University

The Bonnyville Pontiacs are excited to announce another player commitment from the 2021-22 edition of the team.

Forward Charlie Russell has committed to Clarkson University of the NCAA’s ECAC Hockey conference.

Russell posted 16 goals and 20 assists this season, his first with the Pontiacs.

“Charlie’s relentless work ethic and style of play brought another dimension to the Pontiacs this season,” said associate GM Neil Langridge.

“Clarkson is getting a hard-working, physical, and skilled forward into their program.”

Russell becomes the 108th Bonnyville Pontiac collegiate commitment since the 2013-14 season.

He was picked as the Pontiacs Top Rookie at the annual awards banquet in March.

The Pontiacs congratulate Charlie on his hardwork and know he will translate to a determined NCAA Division I player.
