All three players will compete within the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) next season (2022-23).
Bulldogs assistant GM, Adam West, released a statement on behalf of the Bulldogs organization:
“We’re extremely excited that these three terrific young men have chosen to continue their playing and academic careers on to the next ACAC level,” West expressed. “As 20-year-old players on our inaugural roster, Deegan, Nick, and Tye helped us create a culture and identity for our program as leaders, and we are proud that they will take along those qualities as good people to their new programs.”
