Twenty year-old graduate Kory Roy has committed to play for the University of Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves next season. A native of Anchorage, Kory will be suiting up for his hometown team. The Seawolves compete in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
Kory won a national championship with the Vernon Vipers in the 2008-2009 season before coming to Canmore. This season, he put up 30 goals and 33 assists for 63 points which put him in the AJHL’s top ten.
“I really want to say thanks to everyone in the Eagles organization, especially Andrew Milne, Kurtis Jones, Darryl Lockwood, Dave and Jenny Palmer, and Jack and Dorothy Hetter. My time in Canmore was amazing, and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to play there. I’m looking forward to the next chapter with the Seawolves but will always remember my time as an Eagle,” said Kory.
“The entire organization is very happy for Kory and his accomplishments. Kory was very passionate about his goal of playing Division 1 hockey, and we are pleased to see such a fine young man achieve this. Kory has an excellent shot and ability to score goals and has proven that he understands the game very well. I am convinced that with his skill set and leadership, he will excel with Anchorage and grow into a big part of their success. The Eagles organization would like to congratulate Kory and his family; we wish him all the success with the Seawolves,” said head coach Andrew Milne.
