Back in September, he was receiving interest from teams both north and south of the border at the AJHL showcase but had yet to receive any NCAA offers. Forchuk is the second Canmore Eagle player to commit to a Division I school along with fellow forward, Logan Ferguson who committed to Holy Cross. This is the third future commitment from the AJHL following the prior commitments of two defensemen is T.J. Brown (Camrose Kodiaks) and Joe O'Connor (Brooks Bandits).
I expect Quinnipiac will continue to be aggressive on the recruiting trail as I tweeted back on October 28th that the Bobcats might have up to 3 spots left for the 2017-18 season. Forchuk now fills one of those spots for next season.
