Team captain Adam Osczevski has joined a long list of Cowichan Valley Capitals players from last season to sign on with a post-secondary team for the coming year.

Osczevski has committed to play hockey for the University of Alberta-Augustana Vikings in Camrose, Alberta, for 2016-17.

The Martensville, Sask. native had his best B.C. Hockey League season as a 20-year-old in 2015-16, reaching career highs with 16 goals, 15 assists, 31 points and 41 penalty minutes over 55 games, including a four-goal game against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in September. He added three goals and one assist in five playoff games.

Acquired from the West Kelowna Warriors early in the 2014-15 campaign, Osczevski finished his three-year BCHL career with 65 points on 36 goals and 29 helpers over 158 contests.

Other players from the 2015-16 Capitals team to commit to college teams include Josh Adkins and Jake Switzer (Concordia Wisconsin), Ryan Burton (Union), Corey Hoffman (Cornell), Kade Kehoe (Colorado College), Mitch Meek (Clarkson), and Pat Geary (Bowdoin).
