Scott Legault commits to the University of Victoria Vikes mens hockey team

The Princeton Posse Junior Hockey Club is proud to announce that Scott Legault has committed to play for the University of Victoria Vikes

The Princeton Posse Junior Hockey Club is proud to announce that goaltender Scott Legault has committed to play for the University of Victoria Vikes starting the 2014-2015 season. The 1994 goaltender officially informed Posse staff last week that he accepted an offer from the University of Victoria, where the staff unanimously supported the former 2013-2014 starting goaltender for the Posse.

Assistant General Manager and Associate Coach Mark McNaughton commented: “We are extremely excited for the opportunity that Scott has in Victoria. When one of our own has the opportunity to move on, it confirms that we made good choices as an organization. Scotty came into a tough situation and was immediately relied upon to carry the workload, he did a great job for us, and we are extremely grateful for the work he did here and he will always be a member of the Posse family.”

Legault was acquired in November in a trade with the Comox Valley Glacier Kings where he was 5-1. Legault was named the starting goaltender of the Princeton Posse and continued to put on a workload that totalled 23 games played, which included 16 of the last 19 games, and 12 of the last 14. Scotty was perused and chosen by the Posse over many other qualified goaltender candidates that were available.

Legault has a resume of winning, and overall having strong playoff performances, including a championship with the Vancouver NW Giants Major Midget Hockey Club. Scott completes his junior career with stops with the Fernie Ghostriders, Columbia Valley Rockies, Beaumont Chiefs, Comox Valley Glacier Kings and Princeton Posse.

Scott Legault concluded in a statement: “Playing in Princeton was one of the most beneficial experiences of my hockey career. I have never played for a team as supportive as Princeton. It gave me a lot of confidence in myself as a player knowing that I was playing for teammates and a coaching staff that truly believed in me. I can’t thank the town, the coaches, the volunteers, the fans and all my teammates enough for everything they did for me. I met some great people and made some unforgettable memories in my time with the team. I am beyond proud to be an alumni of the Posse.”
