It is with great pleasure that the Summerland Steam announced today the commitment of two former players to play in the BCIHL (British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League) next season. The Steam congratulate graduating players Brett Huber and Nelson Hurry, who will join the defending BCIHL Champion Selkirk Saints in 2015/16.

The Saints have established themselves as a bit of a dynasty in the BCIHL, winning the BCIHL Championship for the third straight year this past season. Their run of success has a lot to do with the KIJHL and it's ability to graduate players onto the next level, as the Saints use the KIJHL as a major source of player recruitment year after year.

Last season the Saints had 7 players whose last team resides in the KIJHL, and that number will likely stay the same if not rise in 2015/16. Huber and Hurry will join #SaintsNation alongside Osoyoos Coyotes' graduating Captain Troy Maclise, Creston Valley Thundercats' graduating Captain Marcel Fuchs, and former Beaver Valley Nitehawks' standout Dallas Calvin. All will be new additions to next year's squad, who will be looking for their 4th consecutive BCIHL title. 

While looking for that title on the ice, both Brett Huber and Nelson Hurry will take on a serious workload in the classroom. Huber will study Psychology, while Hurry will enroll in Selkirk's Science program. 

The release from the Saints can be found right here:
