Corrow Commits To Chargers
Joshua Corrow has committed to the University of Alabama-Huntsville becoming the first player from the 2020-21 Whitecourt Wolverines to commit.
Corrow played 112 regular-season games for the Wolverines over two seasons after joining them from the Tampa Scorpions in 2018. He scored five goals, 29 points and was an assistant captain for them last season.
Corrow is New Port Richey, Flordia, native and it’s possible this commitment came a year earlier than planned. With the COVID situation being what it is, it may have become difficult for him to cross the border when camp comes around. This decision now prevents that from happening and gives him a fantastic opportunity to continue his hockey career at an NCAA Division I program.
Also, this moves helps Whitecourt’s 20-year-old situation too. Currently, the Wolverines have nine ’20s heading into the 2020-21 season which they will have to bring down to six before their season opener.

It is yet to be determined which players will opt to play in the NAHL, but it could become a temporary home for a few of them while they wait for the border to open.
