Dorais commits closer to home with Okanagan College
Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - Submitted by BCHL Media/Okanagan College

The Okanagan College Coyotes are pleased to announce the commitment of Alberni Valley Bulldogs captain Trent Dorais for the comming season. Dorais will attend Okanagan College next season while studying in the electrical apprentice program.

Dorais wore the “C” for the Bulldogs where he spent his past three seasons. The Vernon native compiled impressive numbers over five seasons in the BCHL including 205 total games played. He started his junior career at home in Vernon where he played for two seasons before the transition to Alberni Valley. Dorais collected 34 goals and 49 assists for 83 total points over his junior career.

After originally committing to play for the SAIT Trojans of the ACAC next season, Dorais decided that playing close to home and attending OC was the best option for him personally.

“We are very pleased that Trent has decided to stay in the Okanagan and play for the Coyotes next season,” said Coyotes GM Kolby Barnstable. “Adding a player of Trent’s character and skill is huge for our program. Trent is the type of player you build your roster around, we couldn’t be happier with this addition.”

“Okanagan College is a great fit for me and I am very excited to stay close to home and play with the Coyotes," said Dorais. "I had a great junior hockey experience but feel I am ready to make the transition into College.”

Dorais will be counted on to fill a big role for the Coyotes next season as they look to build on a 16 win campaign. Dorais is the second captain that the OC has committed for next season, joining Beaver Valley Nighthawk Chris Derochie as Okanagan’s first two commitments for the 2012-13 season.
