I would like to say thank you to my family, teammates, coaches and everyone else who supported me throughout the way to make it possible. I am honoured to become a part of the Bulldogs organization and to further my hockey and academic pursuits at Ferris State.”


”We’re very happy and excited for Matt committing to Ferris State, ” stated Storm General Manager Mark Bomersback . ”This is a well earned  and deserved opportunity for him. He’s been everything we hoped for, on and off, the ice since his arrival to Grande Prairie. Matt is a mature young man who represents everything we want in our organization. He is a great addition for the Bulldogs and we look forward to his continued success this season and beyond at Ferris State.”
