NEWINGTON, CT -- Gabriel Couture, a goaltender for the Connecticut Chiefs, has committed to Bryn Athyn College for the fall of 2019. Couture joined the Chiefs in late October, and won six games over the course of the year for Connecticut. Couture turned heads across the league, while making over 30 saves in 13 different games throughout the season.
"From the moment Gabriel arrived he brought a seriousness, work ethic, and desire to grow as a goaltender, that was contagious throughout our organization," said Chiefs head coach and general manager Kevin Cunningham. "He is a young man who loves the game and is willing to work to earn his opportunities. His play on the ice was excellent, but his impact on the Chiefs, his teammates and me personally has been equally outstanding. I am extremely proud of Gabriel and very excited for him and his family that he will get to continue his education and hockey career at Bryn Athyn, where I believe he will have a tremendous four-year experience and make a significant impact on the Lions’ program.”
As Cunningham mentioned, Couture made his impact felt immediately upon his arrival in Newington. The '98 native of Canada got my comfortable as the season progressed, and now he's looking forward to seeing what he can do at the next level.
"I knew that Bryn Athyn would be a good fit for me nearly right away," said Couture. "I loved the coaching staff from the get-go because of their ambitions for the coming years. It is a very young program with a ton of good young players, so I think the team has a lot of potential. I look forward to helping the program grow and playing a part in the continued establishment of a winning culture. I would also like to thank the Connecticut Chiefs for giving me the opportunity to showcase my talents this season. From the owners to the coaching staff to my teammates and the team’s support staff, everyone has been great to me and I know that I would not be heading to Bryn Athyn in the fall without all of them."
