Two Portage Terrier Alumni have committed to separate colleges this week.
Former captain Reece Henry, who was traded to the Cranbrook Bucks (BCHL) when the MJHL season was shut down, has committed to the Minot State Beavers (ACHA). Henry had 71 points in 122 games over three seasons with Portage. His biggest goal came as the overtime winner in game seven of the Turnbull Cup in 2019.
“I had a couple of options and I felt they were the best fit for me” says Henry. “They were excited to have me. I don’t want to take my spot for granted. My mentality is to earn my spot on the team and go from there.”
Former Terrier alternate captain Peyton Gorski has committed to the University of Alberta-Augustana. He was traded to the Whitecourt Wolverines (AJHL) When the MJHL season was halted in 2020. Gorski put up 50 points in 111 games over three seasons with Portage as both a forward and defenceman.
“There were a lot of good options but I felt this was the best place to move forward in my life,” says Gorski. “I’m taking business and economics with an undergrad in general management. My goal is to learn about finance and the business side of hockey. Hopefully this degree will help me with that.”
The Terriers wish both of them the best of luck in college.
