Alex Corley, who turns 18 in November, has played the last three seasons with the midget AA and AAA teams at Shattuck St. Mary’s. Presented with many opportunities in the US and Canada, Corley has chosen the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the BCHL.
Over three seasons at the Shattuck, the Westminster, Colorado native compiled a record of 67-10-3, with a 1.08 goals against average and .942 save percentage. During the 2013/14 season on the midget AAA program, Corley played in 31 games with a record of 23-6-1, a goals against average of 1.19 and save percentage of .940 and eight shutouts.
In a team release Corley said;
“I can’t wait for the season to start and get out there and get back on the ice, I can’t describe how pumped I am,” said Corley. “I really felt that it was a really good fit with the organization. Coach Beatty is awesome, I thought the whole staff was great and when I went up there for a visit it just kind of felt like home up there; I can’t imagine many junior hockey towns are better than Cowichan.”
When asked what he hopes to bring to the Capitals, Corley said, “I like to think of myself as a pretty solid, technically sound goalie but also I think the big thing that separates me from a lot other guys is that I thrive on making game changing saves and I like to steal quite a few games.
“I haven’t met the other goalie Lane, but I’m obviously a team player and I’m all about winning and doing whatever it takes to get to that point. Between me and Lane I think we will be one of the hardest teams in the league to score on,” added Corley.
Corley will man the pipes in a star-studded duo alongside Lane Michasiw who the Capitals committed earlier this spring from the Telus Cup Champion, Prince Albert Mintos.
