Cordier Comes East
After starting the season with Cowichan Valley in the BCHL, Christian Cordier felt a move east would do him good. After graduating from Berkshire School last summer, the '92 dman thought he would try hockey out west. He quickly realized the EJHL would be best for him. Last week, Cordier made his debut with the New England Huskies and looks to garner more college attention now that he is in their backyard.
