Alex Power commits to Quinnipiac University Bobcats

The Bonnyville Pontiacs are excited to announce another player commitment to the NCAA this season.

Yaks forward Alex Power confirmed on Friday that he is committing to Quinnipiac in the NCAA Division I.

This is Power’s second season with the Pontiacs after a disrupted 2020-21 year. The St. John’s, Newfoundland native has 14 goals and 8 assists in 25 games this season.

In his AJHL career, Power has played 40 games and earned 30 points.

“Alex Power plays the game with pace and with the puck, he possesses outstanding deception and brings an unmatched committed work ethic to the rink each and every single day,” said Coach and General Manager Rick Swan.

“He dedicates himself to be the best he can be on and off the ice and the way he carries himself like a pro and a person is a great example to our younger players. Alex’s commitment is well-deserved and he has worked extremely hard for this opportunity. He is also an exceptional human being and comes from an outstanding and supportive family.

“I am so proud and excited for Alex’s NCAA journey and know that Quinnipiac is getting themselves an instant culture enhancer and very good hockey player,” said Swan.

The (’02) forward is the first Pontiac to commit to Quinnipiac since Jean-Marc Beaudoin, who captained the Bobcats in his senior year in 2009-10.  

Since the 2013-14 season, this is the 100th Pontiacs collegiate commitment.
