White Commits to Western Michigan University
The third and final University of Alabama-Huntsville commit from the Sherwood Park Crusaders has chosen to move on from the program.
The Sherwood Park Crusaders announced yesterday evening that Jarred White has committed to Western Michigan University for the 2020-21 season.
White had a career season with the Crusaders after being acquired in the off-season from the Fort McMurray Oil Barons. In 55 games in Sherwood Park, White scored 29 goals and 65 points which helped him earn an NCAA commitment.
Western Michigan played in National Collegiate Hockey Conference. The University of Denver also plays in that conference were White’s three teammates from last season – Carter Savoie, Michael Benning and Reid Irwin – will be attending next season.
White now becomes the 11th Crusaders earn a post secondary scholarship from the 2020 roster.
Cooley gets CHL rights moved
An interesting deal went through today in the WHL which saw Stanley Cooley get moved from the Prince George Cougars to the Seattle Thunderbirds.
Cooley has spent the previous two seasons with the Spruce Grove Saints were he played in 112 games scoring 23 goals and 60 points. He was also named to the AJHL North All-Rookie team in 2019.
What is intriguing about the deal is that the Thunderbirds and Saints have the same ownership group. In the past, the Thunderbirds have used Spruce Grove as a development program with the like of Sam Popwich, Reid Schaefer, and Jordan Gustafson all playing for both the Saints and Thunderbirds last season.
This could turn out to be nothing; however, the intriguing is there.
Cooley is currently committed to the Northeastern University Huskies for the 2020-21 season.
