BOMBER CAPTAIN TO JOIN FORMER BOMBER AT AIC IN THE FALL
The Flin Flon Bombers ability to move players on to the next level gets stronger every year.
2018-2019 Flin Flon Bomber Captain Nate Hooper (Winnipeg, Mb) has committed to American International Collegiate for the 2019-2020 season.
Here’s what Head Coach and GM Mike Reagan had to say about Hooper.
” Hoops is one of my favorite players to coach, and if anyone deserves this its him. I believe AIC is getting a great player and a future captain. Hoops see’s the ice like very few players I’ve ever coached. Nate makes everyone he play with better. He is a great fit for their program, and he will have a very good college career.”
Nate Hooper will join former Flin Flon Bomber Joel Kocur at AIC, and joins an impressive group of players that have received scholarships in just the past 3 seasons.
12 players are either playing, or have committed to playing Division 1 NCAA in just the last 3 seasons.
