Langley's Kyle Star set to join TWU hockey team in the fall

The Trinity Western Spartans have added an offensive Star.

The university hockey team has added Langley’s Kyle Star.

The 20-year-old Star — who currently plays in the BCHL with the Trail Smoke Eaters — has signed to join the Spartans for next season.

“I’m thrilled to be coming to TWU. For me, it’s a chance to further my education and my faith while also contributing to the Spartans hockey team,” Star said.

“We are really excited to be adding Kyle to the mix for next season,” said Spartans coach Barret Kropf.

“He is a top end offensive talent that will also continue to build on our strong culture in the locker room. He is a tremendous individual and will bring leadership on and off the ice to our program.”

The five-foot-11, 175-pound forward has 14 goals and 14 assists in 39 games.

He spent the previous two seasons in the Alberta Junior Hockey League where he amassed 29 goals and 43 assists in 108 games.

And prior to playing junior A, Star spent two seasons in Abbotsford with the junior B Pilots, helping the team win the Keystone Cup as Western Canadian junior B champions in 2011/12.

His older sister Katelyn Star was a member of the Spartans women’s basketball team from 2011 to 2013.
