PRINCETON – In two seasons with the Princeton Posse, Terrance Josephson scored 34 goals and 81 points in 98 regular season games. He added 11 points in nine playoff games.


The Sechelt, B.C. native will now take his two-way game to the Missouri State University Ice Bears Division 1 program in the American Collegiate Hockey Association.


“My two seasons with Princeton has helped me grow my game a lot,” says Josephson in a team statement. “I have a lot more confidence with the puck and helped grow my 200-foot game more than just the offensive side of the puck. I’m looking forward to being able to still play hockey and go to school at the same time. Looks like it’s a great hockey program with a good fanbase, so I’m super excited.”


Josephson heads into his first season in the American Collegiate Hockey Association looking to help the Ice Bears any way he can. Josephson, who scored 35 goals and 87 points in 116 career Kootenay International Junior Hockey League games, which includes 18 with the Revelstoke Grizzlies, hopes he can produce offensively.


Posse coach-general manager Mark McNaughton says Josephson was a major player in his time in Princeton.  


“His offensive skill set made him a fan-favourite from day one and his effort to grow his whole game made him a leader in our room,” says McNaughton. “His willingness to learn only grew in his time here even as his junior career was coming to an end.”


McNaughton added he has no doubt Josephson will take the same approach in Missouri and it will help him both on the ice and in the classroom.  


“I am excited to see what the future has in store for Terrance,” says McNaughton.


Josephson began his junior career with the Grizzlies, where he had a goal and six points. He then went to the Mission City Outlaws in the Pacific Junior Hockey League, where he collected five goals and six points in 19 games.
