For the fourth time this off season, the Flin Flon Bombers are pleased to announce that a member of their 2014-15 team will continue his playing career in the collegiate ranks.
1994 born Dean Allison (Surrey, BC) has committed to the SAIT Trojans Men’s Ice Hockey Team for the 2015-16 season.
Allison played in parts of two seasons with the team after he was picked up following his release from the Aberni Valley Bulldogs of the BCHL. In his first season with the club Allison finished with 10 points (5g, 5a) in 39 games but had his coming out party in the hard fought five game series against the Estevan Bruins where he lead the team with 7 points (3g, 4a) helping them almost up end the Bruins.
The next season Allison continued his strong play finishing up the 2014-15 season with 53 points (15g, 38a) in 56 games adding another six points (2g, 4a) in the seven game series against the Notre Dame Hounds.
An excellent person in the faceoff circle, Allison was also relied on for his strong leadership qualities, leading the team as their captain for his final season in junior hockey, something Head Coach and General Manager Mike Reagan knew before the start of the season.
“We knew Deaner was going to be our captain after that series against Estevan,” said Reagan. “I’ve said this before, he’s been one of our best captains, someone that I compared to Dennis Kubat who was our captain my first season as coach.”
“We’re really excited for him to continue hockey at a higher level.”
The SAIT Trojans play in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) where they lost out in the Championship Series against their rivals from NAIT.
