Myles Hektor

The Truro Junior Bearcats are pleased to announce that goalie, Myles Hektor, has committed to the University of Wisconsin Superior Hockey program for the 2019 – 2020 season.

The Yellow Jackets are a NCAA Division III team playing in the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC). The Yellow Jackets are two time National Champions who, over the years, have made nine NCAA Frozen Four Appearances, thirteen NCAA Tournament Appearances, and participated in sixteen Conference Championships. The Madison based team, coached by Richard McKenna, finished third in the WIAC this year and are currently engaged in playoffs.

Hektor, a 20 year-old from Lake Bluff, Illinois, is completing his junior eligibility as a Bearcat. He spent the 2016 – 2017 season with the Blind River Beavers (NOJHL). Last year he began the season with the Kanata Lasers (CCHL) before coming to the MHL with the Edmundston Blizzard. He played 13 Blizzard regular season games last year posting a 2.57 GAA and appeared in seven playoff games helping the Blizzard claim the MHL Championship.

As a Bearcat, he’s appeared in 32 games and a MHL high in minutes played. He’s been a tremendous addition to the team and a strong mentor. The Bearcat organization wishes him the very best in hockey and in his studies toward a Business Degree.
