BCHL extra: Chiefs sniper joins Michigan Tech Huskies

Malcolm Gould is leaving the BCHL's Chilliwack Chiefs for the NCAA's Michigan Tech Huskies.

Malcolm Gould’s stay in Chilliwack was a memorable one, and as it turns out, a short one.

The 19-year-old won’t be back for his final BCHL season after committing to the Michigan Tech Huskies.

Gould becomes the fifth current BCHL player to join Michigan Tech for the coming season.

With the Huskies, Gould will suit up alongside fellow freshmen Alex Petan (Coquitlam Express), Walker Hyland (Alberni Valley Bulldogs), Jujhar Khaira (Prince George Spruce Kings) and Jamie Phillips (Powell River Kings).

Gould, a North Vancouver native, sniped 36 goals to lead the Chiefs this season.

He added 36 assists for a team-leading 72 points.

The future Husky was particularly dangerous down the stretch, posting back-to-back hat-tricks in the final week of the regular season to help Chilliwack wrap up a playoff spot.

In a six-game first round series loss to the Penticton Vees, Gould managed two goals and five points in six games.

Michigan Tech competes in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association of NCAA Divison I hockey.

The Huskies currently have six BCHL alums on their roster; Bryce Reddick (Cowichan Valley),  Milos Gordic (Langley), Riley Sweeney (Alberni Valley, Surrey and Willams Lake), Justin Fillion (Prince George and Victoria), Tyler Gubb (Victoria, Salmon Arm) and Kevin Genoe (Prince George, Alberni Valley, Williams Lake and Nanaimo).
