Victoria Grizzlies forward Jay Mackie came to the BCHL to earn a shot at playing NCAA Division I hockey and he's now attained that objective.
Mackie has accepted an offer from the College of the Holy Cross and will play next season for the Crusaders.
This is Mackie's second season in the BCHL. He posted nine goals and 19 assists last season and looks on pace to better those totals as he has five goals and eight assists in 14 games so far this campaign. The 6-foot, 184-pound native of Kingston, Ont. has also tallied twice shorthanded which is tied for tops in the BCHL.
College of the Holy Cross competes in the NCAA's Atlantic Hockey conference against teams such as Air Force, RIT, Robert Morris and Bentley.
BCHL graduates on the Crusaders roster currently are Matt Ginn, Logan Smith, Brett Mulcahy, Brett McKinnon, Matt Scarth and Cam Lawson.
