The Grande Prairie Storm are proud to announce that Storm forward and assistant captain Vincent Milot-Ouellet has commited to the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) for the upcoming 2019-2020 season.

In addition to his AJHL career, Milot-Ouellet played 165 games in the QMJHL ammassing 65 points.
Vincent Milot-Ouellet shared his thoughts about committing to UQTR:
"I'm very excited to be going back to Trois-Rivieres after playing 4 years away from home. I cannot wait to start this new chapter in my hockey career playing in front of friends & family at UQTR. My short time in Grande Prairie led to the best season in my junior career and I've met amazing people. My teammates have been tremendous and are a large part of my success on and off the ice. I've had the time of my life here, I wish I would have come here earlier in my career"
"Je suis vraiment excité de revenir à Trois-Rivières après 4 saisons à l'étranger. J'ai vraiment hâte de commencer ce nouveau chapitre dans ma carrière de joueur de hockey, ça va être spécial de jouer devant ma famille et mes amis à l'UQTR. Pour le peu de temps que j'ai passé à Grande Prairie, j'ai rencontré des gens extraordinaires, en plus d'avoir connue ma meilleure saison dans les rangs junior. Mes coéquipiers ont été indispensables pour que ça soit de mes succès sur la glace, mais aussi hors-glace. J'ai vécu les meilleurs moments de ma vie ici, j'aurais souhaité passer plus de temps dans ma carrière junior ici."
Head Coach Matt Keillor had this to say about Milot-Ouellet:
"Milot-Ouellet has been consistent on both sides of the puck since since he arrived in Grande Prairie. He's a fierce competitor and brings that competitive edge to the rink every day. He pushes guys to compete in practice and has been an important part of our leadership group down the stretch. The staff is very happy for Vincent and wish him all the best with the Patriotes."
Catch Milot-Ouellet and the rest of the Storm as they take on the Ft. McMurray Oil Barons on March 10th in Game 3 of the first round of the AJHL Playoffs.
