The Grande Prairie Storm would like to announce that goaltender Tate Sproxton has committed to the University of New England located in Biddeford, Maine.
Sproxton was a 20 year old goaltender for the Storm in 2015-2016 and was acquired in a trade from the Calgary Canucks. Tate played 31 games for the Storm and recorded a shut out in his final Junior A hockey game in Fort McMurray.
The University of New England play in the NEHC and finished in 4th place last year. Tate joins fellow 20 year old Ian Mclellan (Concordia University) as members of the Storm who have moved on to post secondary education and hockey.
The whole Storm organization would like to congratulate Tate and his family on his accomplishment and wish him the best of luck next year.
