Curtis DeBruyn after a four year tour with the Olds Grizzlys Junior A Hockey Team, and most recently as its Captain, has signed a letter of intent to play Division One NCCA Hockey with the University of Alabama Huntsville Chargers. He will be heading south for the 2009/10 season.
To me as a Grizzly fan, volunteer and past president of the Team, this announcement makes it all worth while. Curtis is a fine example of a young man and exceptionally skilled athlete who has, through hard work and diligence at school, has been able to leverage his athletic ability into a scholarship that will allow him to continue to purse both hockey and education at the same time and earn a Degree. As a teacher by training, this is why I am proud to be Grizzlys volunteer.
Curtis will be joining fellow Grizzly alumni ; Bruce M ulherin (2001/02) and Tyler Hilbert ( 2003/04) who earlier having both played at Alabama Huntsville.
