Two Bearcats headed for NCAA hockey





The Truro Bearcats are pleased to announce the commitment of two of the team’s 2017 – 2018 players to NCAA Programs in the United States. Elliott McGuire will be attending Assumption College (NCAA II) in Worcester MA., and Graham Rutledge will be off to Bowdoin College (NCAA III) in Brunswick, ME. It was previously announced that graduating forward, Campbell Pickard, committed to Dalhousie University.

McGuire, a native of Lowell, MA, spent four years playing Prep School Hockey with Holderness Prep in New Hampshire prior to this past season with the Bearcats. His versatility, penalty-kill and leadership were obvious each outing.

Rutledge, a Halifax native, was a 2015 Bearcat draft pick who played three years of Prep School Hockey with Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire before starting this season in the BCHL with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. He suited up with the Bearcats in November and quickly established himself as a solid, two-way defencemen.

While both have a season of junior eligibility remaining, the Bearcat organization thanks them for their contribution and wish them all the best in their academic and hockey pursuits.
