Chilliwack in the NCAA: Julseth-White leads Dutchmen to win

Chilliwack's Nolan Julseth-White helped the Union College Dutchmen to a win over the Yale Bulldogs in ECAC action last weekend.

Chilliwack has four players skating in NCAA division one men’s hockey. Here’s how they did in week 17 action.


University of Alabama-Huntsville Chargers: Mac Roy and Graeme Strukoff.

The Chargers took a pair of losses. Facing the top-ranked Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs for the first time, Alabama-Huntsville dropped a 2-1 decision on Friday.

Neither Chilliwack native found their way onto the scoresheet offensively, with Tom Durnie (Calgary, AB) scoring the lone Charger goal.

Strukoff, the ex-Victoria Grizzly, did pick up a five minute facemasking major.

Strukoff collected an assist in the Saturday rematch, another one-goal loss for Alabama-Huntsville.

The Bulldogs won 4-3, with Minnesota native Caleb Herbert scoring the game winner early in period three.

Strukoff assisted on the first Charger goal, scored by Georgia native Kyle Lysaght.

Roy, in his second year with Alabama-Huntsville, has five goals, nine points and 24 penalty minutes in 26 games.

Strukoff, a first-year defenceman, has one goal, five points and 63 penalty minutes in 27 games.

Alabama-Huntsville’s overall record is 2-24-1.

They have this weekend off before facing the University of Maine Black Bears in a back-to-back Feb. 3-4.


Boston University Terriers: Grant Rollheiser

Rollheiser’s Terriers blew out the Providence College Friars in a pair of games last weekend.

The Chilliwack native was a spectator Friday night in a 6-1 win and watched again on Saturday as starter Kieran Millan stopped 26 pucks in an 8-0 shutout.

Rollheiser, the fourth-year Terrier and former Trail Smoke Eater, has logged four games and 161:51 minutes this season, going 2-0-0 with a 3.34 goals-against average and .900 save percentage.

He hasn’t played since Dec. 3.

The Terriers are 15-6-1 overall and 12-4-1 within the Hockey East conference, good for first place.

They don’t play again until Feb. 3 when they visit the Merrimack College Warriors.


Northern Michigan University Wildcats: Wade Epp

Epp’s Wildcats played just one game last weekend, but it was a good one.

Northern Michigan trounced the Michigan Tech Huskies 5-2, though Epp did not get on the scoresheet.

The third year defenceman has one goal, seven points and 48 penalty minutes in 23 games this season.

His team is 11-8-5 overall and 6-7-5-2 within the CCHA (Central Collegiate Hockey) conference. That leaves them ninth in the 11 team circuit.

The Wildcats have a pair of road games Friday and Saturday against the Miami University Redhawks (10-8-2-1).


Union College Dutchmen: Nolan Julseth-White

Julseth-White’s Dutchmen split a pair of games last weekend.

Union College beat the Yale Bulldogs 3-1 on Friday, with Julseth-White picking up an assist on the first Dutchmen goal.

The Union College captain also picked up a tripping minor in the first period.

Julseth-White was held off the scoresheet on Saturday as the Dutchmen fell 3-2 to the Brown University Bears.

The fourth-year defenceman has two assists and 14 penalty minutes in 25 games this season.

His team is 13-6-6 overall and 7-3-3 within the ECAC (Eastern College Athletic) conference. That’s good for second place in the 12-team circuit.

The Dutchmen host the Clarkson University Golden Knights on Friday and the St. Lawrence University Saints on Saturday.
