Lake Superior State University Lakers now have their three goalies for the 2014-2015 Western Collegiate Hockey Association season.
HockeyNewsNorth.com has learned that the latest twine tender to commit to LSSU is Gordy Defiel, a 1993 birth-year who played for Coquitlam Express of the British Columbia Hockey League in 2013-2014.
Prior to going to Coquitlam, Defiel tended goal for the Wisconsin Wilderness and Minnesota Wilderness of the Superior International Jr. Hockey League.
The 6-foot-1, 180 pound Defiel joins fellow freshmen Kevin Aldridge and Peter Megariotis in the Laker net.
Aldridge backstopped the Fairbanks Ice Dogs to the North American Hockey League championship in 2013-2014.
Megariotis, who helped the Port Huron Fighting Falcons to the NAHL’s North Division title in 2011-2012, attended LSSU during the 2013-2014 term but did not play as a transfer student from Ohio State University.
