Sheeran and Rusnack to Play U.S. University Hockey Next Season

January 23, 2015 – The Kelowna Chiefs Hockey Club is pleased to announce that Ethan Rusnack will join assistant coach Matt Sheeran at the University of Central Oklahoma next season.  

Rusnack finalized his commitment last week and will play U.S. University Hockey with the Bronchos for the next four years.

“I’m extremely excited to have the opportunity to play hockey for four more years and receive a university degree while I’m doing it,” says Rusnack. “I set out a goal for myself around grade 9 play hockey in the United States and with UCO’s history I can now look forward to contributing to winning a national championship while I’m there.”

“Rusty is a natural leader amongst his teammates and peers,” said head coach Jason Tansem. “His goal scoring and hockey ability speaks for itself. He will be a huge asset to his new team to say the least.”

Rusnack made his commitment to UCO only a couple of weeks after assistant coach Matt Sheeran announced he too would be suiting up for the Bronchos.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be joining the Bronchos and being able to play hockey competitively again,” said Sheeran. “They have a great program, and going down with a bunch of former teammates and now Ethan joining me, it’s going to be a great experience!”

“Matt was a sought after defenceman when he played for a reason,” said Tansem. “I am sure the skills of the game he learned on the other side of the boards as a coach will make him even better.”

Since joining the Chiefs this season, Rusnack has accumulated 15 goals and 31 assists for 46 points. This is Sheeran’s first season behind the bench with the Kelowna Chiefs.

The Kelowna Chiefs Hockey Club would like to congratulate both Matt and Ethan on their commitments and wish them all the best in their future hockey careers and at university next season.
