Thunder Cats Forward Grant Iles Commits To Selkirk College For 2017/18 Seas
- Submitted by
The Creston Valley Thunder Cats are pleased to announce that 20-year old forward Grant Iles has committed to attend Selkirk College and play post-secondary hockey with the BCIHL's Saints for the 2017/18 season.

Iles was a key contributor on and off the ice for last year's Thunder Cats squad that captured the Eddie Mountain Division regular season title with a record of 36-9-1-1 and won bronze at the 2017 Cyclone Taylor Cup.

The Whistler, BC product joined Creston in December 2015 following a trade from the VIJHL's Comox Valley Glacier Kings, where he had been serving as the team's captain. He thrived as a checking line centre for the Thunder Cats, picking up 15 points in 23 games over the remainder of that season before contributing on a near point-per-game pace (32 in 36) during the 2016/17 campaign. 

He also picked up eight points in 10 playoff contests and two points in four games at the Cyclone Taylor Cup.

"Grant is one of the most tenacious, committed players I've had the chance to coach and his enthusiasm for the game rubs off on everyone around him," says Thunder Cats head coach Jeff Dubois. "We're thrilled for Grant that he has the opportunity to compete at a higher level and wish him all the best academically and in his hockey career at Selkirk College."

Iles was recruited to the Saints by former Thunder Cats bench boss Brent Heaven, who had a chance to see his game up close at Provincials.

“Grant has an ability to get under the skin of his opponent while still contributing offensively,” says Heaven. “His tenacious persistence will be a huge asset to our roster given his record of being a leader on every team over his junior career.”

Iles is excited to take the next step in life and hockey with the Saints and study either either in the  Forest Technology Program or the Heavy Mechanical Foundation Program..

“I chose Selkirk College because the strong programs and smaller class sizes,” he says. “I also chose Selkirk College because I love living in the Kootenays and playing for a prestigious team like the Saints is an honour.”

The Thunder Cats organization congratulates Grant on his commitment to Selkirk College!
