Victoria Grizzlies: Forward Justin Michaelian is moving up to National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Div. 1 hockey this coming season.

Michaelian has committed to play at Ferris State University (FSU) in the fall in his native Michigan. His twin brother, Brendon, is playing at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh starting this autumn.

Justin Michaelian, a 6-foot, 185-pound forward, scored 24 goals and added 20 assists in 48 games with the Grizzlies this past B.C. Hockey League season. He leaves the BCHL having carded 31 goals and 36 assists in 101 total games.

Last season, the Ferris State Bulldogs featured three BCHL alums on their roster, including 2015 BCHL scoring-champ Corey Mackin (Coquitlam Express), Drew Dorantes (Tri-City Storm) and Lucas Finner (Nanaimo Clippers).

Michaelian joins Wenatchee Wild blueliner and 2018 BCHL Top Defenceman Cooper Zech, as both were recruited to Ferris State for the coming season.

The Bulldogs compete in the NCAA’s Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) along with Alaska, Alabama-Huntsville, Alaska-Anchorage, Bemidji State, Lake Superior State, Minnesota State, Bowling Green, Northern Michigan and Michigan Tech.

The Grizzlies made the announcement July 17.

 

Cowichan Valley Capitals: Cowichan Valley Capitals forward Troy MacTavish has skated into the NCAA, and will suit up for the University of Wisconsin-Superior Yellowjackets in the fall.

The Kanata, Ont., native posted 13 goals and 25 assists in 58 games for the Caps last season as the team’s captain. His 25 helpers tied him for second-most on the team.

At Wisconsin-Superior, MacTavish will join a Yellowjackets hockey program that competes in the NCAA’s Div. III Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC). The other teams in the WIAC men’s hockey loop are UW-Eau Claire, UW-Stevens Point, UW-Stout and UW-River Falls.

MacTavish becomes the first BCHL alum on the Yellowjackets roster, as UW-Superior did not have a player from the league last season.

The Capitals made the announcement July 5.
