You can make it an even dozen Westside Warriors players who have secured an NCAA scholarship after a pair of forwards signed with American universities this week.

Warriors captain Alex Grieve as well as fellow 20-year-old forward Quinn Gould have both received college commitments.

Grieve, a Calgary native, has accepted a scholarship to attend Bentley College for the 2011-12 season while Gould has accepted an NCAA Division I scholarship to attend Merrimack College next season.

“As an organization we are very proud of all of our players,” said Warriors coach Darren Yopyk in congratulating both Grieve and Gould. “Our mandate is to help the young student-athletes develop into not only great hockey players, but more importantly great citizens. We believe that as an organization we continue to do just that.”

In 45 games played this year Grieve has 22 goals and 58 total points. He’s 11th in league scoring and leads his team in three-star voting.

Gould is the fourth player on the Warriors current roster to commit to Merrimack and will be joining former teammate Brendan Ellis.
