Hermary Commits to Vikes

The University of Victoria is pleased to announce that centreman Matt Hermary will be joining the Vikes for the 2018/19 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League Season. Hermary, who hails from Coquitlam BC, played his minor hockey at the Burnaby Winter Club where he won a western championship in his Bantam year.

The reliable 6 foot two-way shut down centreman was an assistant captain last year with the Valley Wildcats of the MHL. With a 139 games of Junior A experience under his belt, Matt has also played for the Surrey Eagles of the BCHL and the Melfort Mustangs of the SJHL. His leadership and experience will serve the Vikes well this season.

Asked why he chose UVic, Hermary said, “The original reason why I chose UVic was because of the quality of the Engineering and Co-op programs that the university offers. I’m excited to pursue my engineering degree at one of the top end Universities while still staying close to home.”

Hermary also added, “When I asked some of the players I knew on the team about the hockey program, I received nothing but praise about the program, and was told by one of the players that it was the most fun he’s ever had playing hockey.”

The 2018/19 season will be an exciting time for the Vikes as they try to win their 5th BCIHL Championship.
