I received an email informing me that former Tri-City Storm and Lincoln Stars goalie, Bryce Christianson, appears to be headed to the University of Alaska-Anchorage. Christianson will enroll this coming semester and take the roster spot of injured UAA goalie, Matt Gordon. Gordon suffered an eye injury after he was hit with a puck during a game.
So far this season with the Vernon Vipers (BCHL), Bryce is 15-7-1 with a 2.92 GAA. He has helped his Vipers team to a solid hold on 4th place in the Interior Conference with 45 points.
This move will definitely hurt Vernon's goalie situation, but it should be an excellent move for Christianson. He is an Anchorage native, so he will get to play extremely close to home.
