Seawolves Nab A Recruit In The AJHL

According to Chris Heisenberg's recruiting website, UAA has landed a recruit out of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for next season.

Center Tanner Dusyk of the Bonnyville Pontiacs is a 5-foot-9, 172-pounder who already has put up 5-8--13 totals in just eight games to tie for second in the league in points.

Dusyk, 20, is in his last year of junior.

In 57 games for Bonnyville last season, Dusyk posted 24-26--50 totals.

Of UAA's six seniors, five are forwards, although not sure why Jordan Kwas as listed as a senior when this is only his third season in green and gold. (UPDATE: Turns out Kwas, who has a February birthday, played games in junior after his 21st birthday, which costs a player a year of eligibility -- that's according to UAA, which this season has updated Kwas' status to accurately reflect that even though this is just his third season with the Seawolves, he is technically a senior).
