The Prince George Spruce Kings Junior A Hockey Club of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) is pleased to announce that Spruce Kings forward, Sean Ambrosie, has committed to a four year scholarship at the University of Connecticut. UConn is a NCAA Division I school offering Undergraduate, Graduate and Professional degrees in many areas including Business Administration. With an expansive athletics program, the UConn Huskies Mens Hockey team plays out of the Atlantic Hockey Conference (AHC).
Sean Ambrosie has consistently contributed offensively and is currently second in team scoring and has been in the top twenty among BCHL point producers for much of the season; earning the nineteen year old a spot on the Interior Division All-Star team. Sean has turned heads in his first year in the BCHL for his offensive abilities highlighted by his strength on the puck down-low, long reach and strong skating. From Moorhead, Minnesota, Ambrosie learned of the Prince George Spruce Kings through long-time friend, Jordy Christian and was acquired from the Winnipeg South Blues of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League
?The Prince George Spruce Kings organization is very happy that Sean was able to accomplish his goal of securing a four year hockey scholarship,? said Ed Dempsey, Spruce Kings general manager and head coach. ?This is a real credit to Sean?s outstanding scholastic achievements that he can now combine his love of hockey and academics at an exceptional business school.?
