Rivermen netminder Crossthwaite commits to UNO Mavericks
Thursday, April 17, 2014 - Submitted by Langley Rivermen
The Langley Rivermen are proud to announce another college commitment as goaltender Brock Crossthwaite has accepted an NCAA Division I scholarship to the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

In his first BCHL season, the 19-year old Kanata, Ontario native put up impressive numbers finishing with a 24-9-1 record, the second most wins in the league.  Crossthwaite also finished second in shutouts with three.  He posted a very strong goals against average of 2.42 and a .913 save percentage, among league leaders in both categories.

"Brock proved himself to be an elite goaltender in our league," said Rivermen Head Coach and General Manager, Bobby Henderson.  

"He's going to a program that's looking to take the next step among the elite in the NCAA.  I'm very familiar with the program and I couldn't be happier for him."

Crossthwaite was not only a big factor in the Rivermen's success during the regular season but also continued to play extremely well in playoffs with two shutouts and a .910 save percentage in 12 games.

"I got the icetime I needed to develop, and worked on my mental game and focus and learning how to win those tight, one goal games,  that's going to be really important next year in college," said Crossthwaite who's excited to join a rising program in Omaha.

"I feel like they're putting together a winning team there and that was pretty important to me.  I'm definitely excited and looking forward to the season."

Crossthwaite's commitment makes him the 14th member of the 2013-14 Rivermen roster to secure an NCAA scholarship.
