Forward Owen Sillinger commits to ASU hockey, will arrive in 2017

The Canada native should add to the goal-scoring talent on the team when he arrives.

Owen Sillinger, a forward from Regina (a town in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan) announced his commitment to ASU hockey on Monday and is expected to be with the team for the 2017-2018 season. 

Sillinger was considered to be one of the top "midget" players this past year. Midget is a term used to classify hockey players before they reach the junior hockey level. 

He will start with ASU in 2017 after he finishes two years in the BCHL, where he plays for the Penticton Vees. Through six games with the team, he has tallied a goal and an assist. 

Last year in the Saskatchewan Midget Hockey League (SMHL), he was a captain for the Regina Pat Canadians and totaled 25 goals and 39 assists in 42 games played. 

His father, Mike, played 17 seasons in the NHL as a forward. In addition, he won a gold medal with Team Canada in the 1991 World Junior Championships, and captained his country at the 2000 World Championships.
