Westshore Wolves Jr. B player off to Indiana Tech

Hockey defenceman Dylan Grant will gain education while playing for the Warriors

Defenceman Dylan Grant, a solid presence on the blueline last year for the Westshore Wolves of the Vancouver Island Junior (B) Hockey League, has inked a deal to play for the Indiana Tech Warriors of the NCAA’s American Collegiate Hockey Association.

Grant, a six-foot-two, 200-pounder who had four goals and 12 assists in 40 regular season games with the Wolves, and added three goals and an assist in 10 playoff games, turns 20 in July. He played just one season with Westshore.

Indiana Tech head coach Frank DiCristofaro likes Grant’s combination of size and skill.

“Dylan is a smooth, puck-moving defenceman who can assert himself physically as well,” he said. “He brings a wealth of knowledge with him from the junior ranks and has shown that he can score if needed.”

The Warriors are a fledgling program that competed for the first time in NCAA play last season. They will field Division 1 and 3 teams again this season.

Grant, an honour roll student in high school, intends to major in business at Indiana Tech.
