Good afternoon Ryan,
Just thought I would past this note on to you, so you can spread it around with your players and maybe put it on the website for the Grizzlies alumni. This may illuminate a player or two.
Yes, there is a great future for players coming out of the KIJHL. The KIJHL is still the most scouted Junior B league in the world. Work hard and never give up, because the future is what you make of it.
After the Keystone Cup championship, Kyle had several available options for state universities from the USA for continued education and hockey options, but Kyle chose NAIT in Edmonton to begin his career in Petroleum Technologies. He spent three years at NAIT graduating with honors and a diploma. He then continued his studies at Montana Tech of Montana University in Butte, MT. Again working hard in his assignments and his hockey. He has finally graduated December 11, 2015 with a degree in Petroleum Engineering. He did so with highest honors once again. The Montana Tech Orediggers hockey club were at the top of their league for two years and rated the best team in all of Montana. Kyle was one of ten players from the Orediggers that received All American Athlete status by maintaining a 3.2 GPA average throughout the 2014 season. And yes, his defensive skills are still top notch. Please see attached. Kyle is front and center of MT flag and far right on stage.
He is now home for Christmas and prepping for a tentative engineering career in Douglas, Wyoming. In five short years he’s off and running. I wonder if there is hockey in Wyoming?
Good luck with your game against the Wranglers tonight. Yes, I’m still following the Grizzlies.
