Dragons lose Geddes to Mount Royal Cougars


    The Drumheller Dragons are proud to announce the recent commitment of team captain Rob Geddes to the Mount Royal University Cougars in Calgary.

    Geddes spent the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons with the Dragons, accumulating 37 goals and 47 assists for 84 points in 102 games played. Rob also collected several honours during his time in Drumheller, being named the Team’s Hardest Working Player in 2009-10 and being recognized as both the Leading Scorer and co-MVP of the Club in 2010-11.
    The Mount Royal University hockey program is one of the elite post-secondary programs in the country.
    Having recently captured the 2010-11 Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) League Championship, the Cougars will compete in the ACAC for one more season in 2011-12 and then make the jump to the Canada West Universities Athletic Conference (CWUAA) within Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) for the 2012-13 season.
    A Calgary native, the Dragons’ outgoing captain is excited to continue his hockey career in his hometown. “To be able to transition from Drumheller in the AJHL to the ACAC and eventually the CIS with the Cougars program in Calgary is a dream come true,” Geddes remarked. “I was very impressed by Coach Laforest and his philosophy. What he told me about the attitude and culture they’ve established there actually reminded me of being a Dragon.”
    Geddes joins former teammates Breyden DeCock (University of Calgary Dinos), Colin Bergman (Queen’s University Gaels) and Pat Turville (Concordia University College Thunder) as recent Drumheller Dragons graduates who have joined Canadian post-secondary hockey programs.
