The 2021-22 Most Valuable Player for the Waywayseecappo Wolverines will be heading to play U Sports hockey next season.
Kolton Shindle has committed to the University of Regina Cougars.
The 21-year-old forward from Carman, MB had 45 points in only 31 games last season. He was tied with Boston Bird with the most goals on the team with 23 and had a team-high 1.45 points a game.
Even though his time was brief, Kolton says playing with Waywayseecappo was something special.
“I think playing with the Wolverines was the most fun few months I ever had playing with a team,” he said. “I never met a group that clicked like we did and I never met a coaching staff who cared for you as much as (Taylor Harnett and Josh Lee) did.
Shindle has moved around the junior circuit, originally being picked by the Wolverines second overall in 2016. But he was traded to Portage and started his career with the Terriers, which lasted two seasons and ended up winning a Turnbull Cup Championship and an Anavet Cup Championship.
After the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Shindle played for the Winkler Flyers, Ottawa Jr. Senators of the CCHL and the Lloydminster Bobcats of the AJHL, before getting moved to Waywayseecappo this past season.
“It was definitely a roller-coaster of a few years for me,” said Shindle. “I loved every second of my career. Championships are amazing, but all the guys I’ve played with means something more.”
Shindle says he toured the University of Regina campus and said it was a good fit for himself. He also said he has played with a few guys that are on the current team and is excited to join them.
The Wolverines would like to congratulate Kolton Shindle on this great accomplishment, and thank him for everything he has done for the organization.
