Rockets Star Commits To V-Reds

UPDATE: The press release from the Varsity Reds announcing the addition of Duffy can be found here. It was also mentioned that defenceman Ben Shutron and captain Chris Culligan will both be returning for their 5th, and final, year of eligibiltiy next season.

According to The Guardian forward Ben Duffy, the PEI Rockets all-time leading scorer, has committed to play for the Varsity Reds next season, barring a pro offer. The native of Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia will certainly provide some fire power to UNB's line-up as he has amassed at least 81 points in each of the last three seasons, including a QMJHL-leading 110 points (39 goals, 71 assists) this past year.
