The Cowichan Capitals are excited to announce the commitment of 2001 born forward Vincent Bernier for the 2020/2021 season. Bernier, from St-Hyacinthe, Quebec spent the past two seasons with the Sorel-Tracy Rebelles of the Quebec College Hockey League. Last season Bernier finished 4th on the team in scoring with 13 goals 22 assists for 35 points in 34 games.
“I’m beyond excited to join a good organization like this one. I can’t wait to meet the coaching staff as well as my new teammates. It’s a whole new and exciting challenge for me and I look forward to it. I can’t wait to wear the Cowichan Valley Capitals jersey.” said Bernier.
Over two seasons with the Rebelles, Bernier totalled 44 points. Prior to that he spent two seasons playing U18 high school hockey where he recorded 51 points in 55 games at École Verbe-Divin.
“We really expect Vincent to be able to come in and have a big impact on our team. He hits hard, competes, goes to the net, and overall plays a really committed game with a lot of jam. He will quickly become a fan favourite with his playing style and personality” said Capitals Head Coach Geoff Grimwood.
