Head Coach Jon Jonasson had this to say about Gavin Proeh committing to Anna Maria College, “Gavin came to us with one goal in mind and that was helping lead the Moose to the National Championship. With Gavin’s mindset and leadership he helped keep the team on track on and off the ice during the Moose inaugural season. I am extremely excited to see Gavin commit to a school next year where he will have an immediate impact.”
“First, I want to thank the coaches and management for making my last year of junior hockey one to remember, all my friends, and my teammates for supporting me and never giving up on my dream to play college hockey. But most of all I want to thank my parents for sacrificing a lot of time and money to be able to pursue what I love most and above all believing in me throughout this process. I can proudly say that I am committed to playing college hockey at Anna Maria. Thank you everyone for the endless support and for the love of the game.” From Gavin Proeh
