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.

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.

Warriors Rap:

Former Warriors defenceman Justin Schultz is among the finalists for the Hobey Baker award as the NCAA’s top hockey player. In just his second season with the University of Wisconsin, Schultz has 32 points in 26 games…

The Warriors hosted Powell River Tuesday (results unavailable) and will play two straight on the road this weekend as they play in Salmon Arm Friday and in Langley on Saturday…

Last weekend the Warriors split a pair of games, beating Salmon Arm 6-1 before falling to Merritt with a score of 6-3.
