The Okotoks Oilers take pride in announcing that 18 year goaltender, Sean Cahill, has committed to the University of Alaska Fairbanks Nanooks, of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association, in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Sean is from Calgary, Alberta, where he played his minor hockey and in 2008 graduated from the Calgary Buffalo Association. During Sean’s last season with the Calgary Midget AAA Buffaloes, his play was instrumental in leading the Buffaloes to represent the West at the Canadian Midget Telus Cup Championship. Sean joined the Oilers this season and quickly established himself as one of the outstanding rookies in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. His excellent play resulted in an invitation to try out for the 2008 World Junior ‘A’ Challenge Cup Team West, and he has recently been selected as an AJHL South Division All-star.
The Oilers General Manager/Head Coach Dan MacDonald, stated, “Sean is an extremely disciplined student of the goaltending position, and his consistent play is a contributing factor for the overall success of the Oilers hockey club this season. The Okotoks Oilers wish him continued success with his future plans.”
