Defenseman Josh Roach has committed to the U of S Huskies for the 2013-14 season.

The Flin Flon Bombers are pleased to announce that 1992 born defenseman Josh Roach (Saskatoon, SK) has committed to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies CIS men’s hockey team for the 2013-14 season.

“Josh was a huge asset for us last season,” commented Head Coach and General Manager Mike Reagan, “He’s a big signing for the Huskies.”

Roach put up 54 points (13g, 41a) in 53 games last season for the Bombers after being acquired as futures for forward Andrew Johnston.  In total Roach compiled 148 points (43g, 105a) over 203 SJHL games.

The Huskies hosted the CIS University Cup last season and again for the 2013-14 hockey season.  They finished second in the Canada West with a 19-8-1 record.

In total seven players are moving on from the 2012-13 edition of the Flin Flon Bombers to post secondary education.  Brandt Weldon, Riley Storzuk and Brett Penner are all going to Concordia in the NCAA, with Dylan Balaski (SAIT), Konrad Litke (Augustana) and Jason Wark (NAIT) all committed to schools for the upcoming season.
