Brittain to Denver

Alberta goalie Sam Brittian committed to Denver. He'll likely join the Pioneers in 2011 when Marc Cheverie graduates, or potentially next season if Cheverie gets an offer to leave for the pros.

His commitment probably doesn't say much for the future of Denver's goaltender Adam Murray. Brittain was a pretty highly-recruited kid and had a lot of options, including some places where he probably would have faced less competition for early playing time. Of course Denver's track record with goalies, and being one of the only programs with a full-time goaltending coach probably helped as well.
