The Drayton Valley Thunder are pleased to announce that forward Austin McKay has committed to the Lake Superior Lakers of the CCHA.
“The Drayton Valley Thunder congratulate Austin on receiving the offer to suit up with the Lake Superior Lakers,” said Thunder Head Coach Fran Gow. “We know that this has been a goal of Austin’s and we are excited for he and his family. The Lakers are getting a big body that can dominate down low in both ends, and seeing the rate of improvement in Austin’s skills and game the last two seasons, the Lakers are getting a solid all round player. The Thunder wish all the best for Austin and thank him for his commitment to The Drayton Valley Thunder.”
Three players from the 2011-2012 Thunder roster have already committed to attend and play at the post-secondary level nest season. Forward Tyler Helton has committed to the University of Connecticut Huskies and defenceman Trammell Lynes has committed to the Concordia University Falcons.
