The Langley native completed his first full BCHL campaign last season after spending two years with the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Calgary Mustangs.
With the Bulldogs, Deo went 21-18-2 with a 3.12 goals-against average and .914 save percentage.
He was outstanding in the playoffs, backstopping his team to the conference final where they lost to the eventual league-champion Surrey Eagles.
In the postseason, the five-foot-nine stopper had a 2.37 GAA and .935 SP.
He is the second BCHL grad committing to the Blugolds. He’ll join ex-Eagles blueliner Troy Paterson.
The Blugolds compete in the NCAA division-three Northern Collegiate Hockey Association, where they are the reigning national champions.
