The Lakehead University hockey team is pleased to announce that forward Tucker Scantlebury of Foxwarren, Manitoba will be joining the program.
The 6’0”, 170-pound winger played for Melville in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, Lloydminster in the Alberta Junior Hockey League and Swan Valley in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. Scantlebury recorded 36 points last year in 53 regular-season games split between the Lloydminster Bobcats and the Swan Valley Stampeders, and then added 14 points in 17 playoff games with Swan Valley.
Scantlebury, who is enrolled in the General Arts program, is looking forward to getting started at Lakehead. “I’ve heard nothing but good things about the community and city of Thunder Bay,” he said. “Having the opportunity to further my education as a student athlete is something I’m very grateful for.”
