Five V-Reds Named WHL Academic All-Canadians

Last month the Western Hockey League announced a list of 41 former players who achieved the honour of Academic All-Canadian during the 2010-11 season. The Varsity Reds had five players recognized for their excellence in the classroom - Forwards Kyle Bailey (Portland, Lethbridge) and Taylor Procyshen (Tri-City), and defencemen Ben Wright (Lethbridge), Bretton Stamler (Seattle, Edmonton, Swift Current), and Jonathan Harty (Everett). This total was more than all other AUS teams combined. It also placed UNB in a tie with the University of Alberta and the University of Saskatchewan for the most of any school.

To achieve Academic All-Canadian status one must maintain a minimum grade point average of 80%, with a minimum of 18 credit hours while playing for a varsity team.
