Classy forward Trent Murdoch has a lot more classes in store for him now that he’s a member of the Simon Fraser University men’s ice hockey program.
On Monday, SFU announced the former Comox Valley Glacier King will suit up for the Clan’s 2011-12 British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League season.
Murdoch joins the Clan following two seasons in the British Columbia Hockey League. He made an immediate impact as a Junior A rookie in 2009/10, scoring 18 goals and totalling 49 points to finish second in team scoring with the expansion Williams Lake Timberwolves.
The Nanaimo native then split the 2010/11 season between the Alberni Valley Bulldogs and Prince George Spruce Kings, netting six goals and 21 points. His BCHL totals include 112 games played, 24 goals, 70 points and 37 penalty minutes.
Prior to joining the Timberwolves, Murdoch began his junior career with the Glacier Kings of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League and scored 27 goals and 65 points to finish second in league scoring and earn the league’s Rookie of the Year Award.
