Cedar Rapids RoughRiders and former Gilmour Academy defenseman John Gilmour has committed to play hockey at Providence College following his USHL career.
The 18-year-old defenseman has collected 13 points (5g, 8a) in 41 games during his first USHL season. In just his third game in the League, he scored his first USHL goal and earned a plus-five rating in the 10-2 win vs. Sioux City on October 14th, 2011. At Gilmour Academy, the Montreal, Quebec native scored 44 pts in 62 games, and helped lead the Lancers to a Mid-America District title, and a successful trip to the U18 Midget Major AAA Nationals.
"We are very happy for John on his commitment to Providence College. John has worked very hard at improving his game at both ends of the ice" said Mark Carlson, Coach and General Manager of the RoughRiders.
Providence College is a member of Hockey East.
