Vees Miska commits to the Bulldogs
Hunter Miska has committed to the University of Minnesota Duluth.
The Penticton Vees made the announcement today as Miska is the 17th player on the roster to secure an National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I scholarship and joins teammate Jarod Hilderman as future Bulldogs.
Vees head coach Fred Harbinson said Miska has all the intangibles to be successful at this level and in the NCAA.
“Hunter has been a huge part of our success; his confident attitude, tireless work ethic and overall athleticism has made him one of the elite goalies in the BCHL,” said Harbinson in a team statement.
Miska, 18, is in his first season with the Vees and in 30 games has a 17-6-2-4 record, sporting a 2.29 goals-against average, while maintaining a .914 save percentage. Miska is second in the BCHL in goals-against average, tied for second in shutouts with two, and is eighth in save percentage amongst goalies that have played 20 or more games. Miska is coming off a 29-save shutout of the Surrey Eagles on Saturday as the Vees blanked the Eagles 3-0.
