It’s an exciting day for the Rivermen as 18-year old Ryan Coulter has committed to play in Langley next season.
The 18-year old from Ontario is currently in his senior year with Culver Military Academy in Indiana, but played his minor hockey in Canada, including a couple years spent in BC when he was much younger. Describing himself as a hardnosed, energy kind of player, the 5’11”, 195 pound forward says he’ll do whatever it takes to win. That’s certainly something Bobby Henderson likes to hear, as the Rivermen Head Coach and GM also says Coulter has a good overall skill set with integrity and character, attributes you can’t find in just any hockey player.
Coulter was drafted by the OHL’s Erie Otters in 2011, but college has always been the route he’s been looking at as he’ll eventually be off to Bowling Green among the likes of Rivermen Captain Mitch McLain and Jakob Reichert.
Coulter and his Culver teammates are enjoying a solid season themselves with eyes on a championship, something he will also be chasing with the Rivermen next season.
