Well travelled junior hockey player joins Spartans

Well travelled Pitt Meadows junior hockey player Matt Ius is continuing his competitive hockey career with the Trinity Western University Spartans.

TWU announced the signing as “a major piece to its offensive puzzle.”

“Matt definitely has a nose for the net, but he’s also an all-around player,” said coach Dwayne Lowdermilk in a press release. “To have a player like Matt coming to our team is a great boon for us for this season and the future.”

Ius patrolled right wing for the Langley  Chiefs, and along with his BCHL experiences also played 129 games at the WHL level over five seasons.

Last year he was in Canada West, playing university hockey for Mount Royal. Due to injury, Ius played in just four games with the Cougars, registering three assists.

From 2005 to 2011 he played with seven different junior franchises, including the WHL’s Everett Silvertips, Swift Current Broncos, Chilliwack Bruins and Portland Winterhawks, and the BCHL’s Burnaby Express, Nanaimo Clippers and Langley Chiefs.

His best season was 2010-2011 when he scored 28 goals and added 39 assists in 67 games for Langley.

Ius plans to study business at TWU.
