Gavin Gould's on-ice production this season for the Merritt Centennials has been enough to attract the attention of the NCAA and it's earned him an opportunity at Michigan Tech.
It doesn't hurt that there is a family legacy waiting for him there either.
Gould's older brother Malcolm, a former Quesnel Millionaires and Chilliwack Chiefs forward, is enjoying a fine junior season at Michigan Tech with nine goals and 11 assists which puts him third in team scoring.
Gavin hopes to post those kinds of numbers as well when he gets to college. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it will happen while Malcolm is there. The younger Gould is scheduled to join the Huskies program in the 2016-17 season. If Malcolm continues as expected, he'll be graduated from the program by then.
With the Cents this season, Gould has posted 19 goals and 28 assists for 47 points in 44 games. He is second in team scoring and leads the club in assists.
Michigan Tech plays in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association against schools like Bemidji State, Minnesota State, Bowling Green and Lake Superior State.
The Huskies have 12 BCHL alums on their roster this season: Alex Petan, Malcolm Gould, Riley Sweeney, Shane Hanna, Alex Gillies, Mason Blacklock, Devin Kero, Dane Birks, Reid Sturos, Evan Anderson, Brent Baltus and Walker Hyland.
