The Selkirk College Saints hockey team continues to shore up it’s roster with the recent commitment from forward Colin Minardi of Summerland, who will join the Saints for the remainder of the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season.

Minardi has transferred to Selkirk from Finlandia University in Hancock, Michigan, where he spent the first half of the season playing NCAA Division III hockey for the Lions. The 21-year old played nine games during the fall semester, picking up five assists and 19 penalty minutes.

Prior to his time at Finlandia, Minardi spent three seasons in the KIJHL with the North Okanagan Knights and Summerland Steam. He picked up 46 goals and 63 assists in 122 regular season games, including 30 points in 24 games as the Steam’s captain last season.

At the trade deadline he was dealt to the VIJHL’s Victoria Cougars, where he added 17 points and helped the team to a league championship.
