Clarkson University head hockey coach Casey Jones has received commitments from two Nanaimo Clippers forwards. Sheldon Rempal and Devin Brosseau will play their college hockey in the ECAC for the Golden Knights.

Rempal, a '95 from Calgary, Alberta, played midget hockey for the Calgary Buffaloes organization and is in his first season in the BCHL. The left wing has six goals and nine assists in 14 games played so far this season.

Brosseau, a bigger left-shot center, has six goals and six assists in 14 games. The St. Lambert, Quebec native is also in his first season playing in the BCHL.

Both Rempal and Brosseau are 18 years-old and expected to arrive in Potsdam for the fall of 2015. Clarkson assistant Phil Roy, a Quebec native and Golden Knights alum, is a tireless recruiter with great connections especially north of the border.
