Dalyn Flette impressed with his final assignment at the junior level.
Now a rookie with the Mount Royal University Cougars men’s hockey squad, he’s ready for the next test.
Flette was named the top goaltender and tournament MVP at the 2011 RBC Cup, backstopping the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Camrose Kodiaks to the semifinals at the national junior ‘A’ championship.
“There are not a lot of other seasons that I can walk away from and be extremely happy with. I have no regrets from any other season, but this one went the way I wanted it to and the way I saw it happening,” Flette said.
“You obviously want to keep the ball rolling — with the way I was playing — and I think I’ve done that. I learned a lot in my last season in Camrose, with consistency and the things that I have to do on and off the ice. I can now use that knowledge at an institution like this.”
The Cougars’ roster lists Flette as a freshman, but the 21-year-old netminder arrived at Flames Community Arenas with a lengthy puck-stopping resume.
