Wildcats’ defenceman left camp early to retain US college eligibility


From his own account, Kentville’s Brady Atwater had a great experience last week at a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League camp.

 “I had a great camp,” Atwater said in a text message Aug. 15.

His camp experience with the Val D’Or Foreurs consisted of two days, included two games, during which he had two goals and three assists.

Atwater confirmed he had voluntarily left the Val D’Or camp early to keep his National Collegiate Athletic Association eligibility.

 “There is a Division 1 school in Pennsylvania that is interested in me,” he said, “so I had to leave camp after 48 hours to keep my NCAA eligibility open.”

Albeit shorter than it could have been, Atwater loved his time at the camp.

 “It was a hell of an experience,” he said, adding that he felt he “played great!”

On Twitter, Atwater called his choice “a hard decision that no one ever wants to make.” He reiterated, though, “it was a great experience. Thanks, Val D’Or, for everything.”

Atwater is expected to suit up for the Valley Wildcats of the Maritime Hockey League again this season.
