After losing six forwards and 219 points of offense, the Huskies need to rebuild depth at the forward position. They took another step in that direction with the commitment of Junior hockey and BCHL veteran Garrett Forster who announced his choice of the Huskies via twitter on June 20.

The 21 year-old  5’10” 176 pound right-handed forward from Delta, BC is a four-year BCHL veteran having played in 246 regular season games and 50 playoff games. Most recently he was a  member of the RBC Cup Champion West Kelowna Warriors but also saw stints with Chilliwack, Coquitlam, Surrey and Victoria of the BC League. He also had a cup of coffee with the Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Over the past two seasons with Kelowna, Forster played in 124 games (including playoffs) scoring 49 goals and  adding 70 assists for 119 points. A reliable and hard-working forward, head coach Rylan Ferster commented ” Garrett has been a heart and soul guy all year. He plays the game the right way and never takes shifts off”. Forster brings with him good skating and stick skills and the ability to score in the slot. Most of all, he’s an experienced player who will add much-needed depth to the Huskies lineup.

Forster originally committed to D III power St. Norbert but changed his mind after receiving an opportunity to join the Huskies of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference.
