Saints' Davis commits to Denver University

'01 goaltender joining teammate Biro

Spruce Grove Saints goaltender Matthew Davis has announced his commitment to play at Denver University.

The 17-year-old will join current teammate Jordan Biro, as well as former Saints Ian Mitchell and Sean Comrie.

“As a player aspiring to play NCAA hockey, pulling on a Denver Pioneers jersey is something you dream of. To get the opportunity to live out that dream is something I couldn’t pass up.” said Davis in a statement.

“They (Denver) have a world class program that has proven to develop goalies and move them on to professional hockey.” 

“It has been a pleasure to have Matt as a Saint. He is a big part of our team, a high character individual and someone who has come in and worked diligently to hone his craft. It is no accident that he will play for a top NCAA school like Denver.” said Head Coach Bram Stephen. 

“He has put in the work and is now being rewarded. It’s exciting for us a coaching staff to be a part of this special day for Matty, we’re very proud of him.”

Davis has won 16 of 22 games played this season, and has put up a 1.95 GAA, a .917 save percentage, and three shutouts.

He's also the first Saint to commit to an NCAA Division 1 scholarship this season, and joins fellow D-1 commits Parker Saretsky (Michigan Tech), Biro (Denver), Cory Babichuk (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute), and Stanley Cooley (Northeastern).
