Looks like UAA picked up a goaltending recruit

Posted by DOYLE WOODY, adn.com on August 29, 2013 

With Rob Gunderson and Chris Kamal heading into their senior seasons after largely splitting time their first three seasons at UAA, the Seawolves have a recruiting need between the pipes and it appears they addressed it today.

Chris Heisenberg's excellent recruiting site reports the Seawolves have received a commitment for the 2014-15 season from goalie Olivier Mantha, a 20-year-old who will play the upcoming season for the powerful Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League.

Mantha arrives in Penticton from the College Lafleche Dragons in Quebec. For Penticton, he's already bagged a preseason shutout.

Mantha last season went 13-9-2 with a 3.35 goals-against average, .912 save percentage and one shutout.
