Grouchy, the 6'1' 190 pound forward, finished his junior career in the BCHL with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs where he had 23 points in 22 games.

He goes on to say that Grouchy is "an offensive element we have been looking for that will most definitely help our group."

"After a successful Junior Career, we feel Matthew's best hockey is in front of him and we look forward to his development with our program," concludes Wilkins.
