20-year old forward Greg Beller has committed to play next season with the University of Manitoba Bisons. Beller came to Vernon just before Christmas last season from Yale University. The New York Rangers draft pick scored 20 points in 23 regular season games and was a force in the playoffs.
The Vernon Vipers would like to congratulate Greg and wish him good luck next season.
With this latest commitment, every graduating Vipers player has secured an opportunity to play college or university hockey next season. This puts the season total of post secondary scholarships up to 11. Congratulations to all these players:
Hunter Bishop (Ohio State University), Scott Zurevinksi (Quinnipiac), Isaac Smeltzer (Brock University), Travis Brisebois (University of Saskatchewan), Bryce Christianson (University of Alaska – Anchorage), Ryan Kakoske (University of British Columbia), Evan Witt (Michigan Tech), Connor Jones (Quinnipiac), Kellen Jones (Quinnipiac), Kyle Bigos (Merrimack College), Greg Beller (University of Manitoba) and Justin Thomas (St. Olaf College).
