Chubak leaving NU hockey to turn pro


Niagara Gazette — Might Chubak see an opportunity for quick promotion within the organization?

"We haven't talked about that yet," Chubak said to the Gazette. "We just have a camp in July and we're going to go from there. I really don't know much right now. I've talked to a couple guys in the organization but not too much, just a couple of welcomes."

The native of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan looked back fondly on his years as a Purple Eagle.

"The whole time I was here I felt we were a winning team," Chubak said. "I really enjoyed that atmosphere with my teammates. We felt we could compete for a championship every year."

While Burkholder now faces the task of replacing one of his most valuable players, Chubak thinks the Purple Eagles will continue to succeed.

"They'll be fine without me" he said. "There's a lot of good goaltenders out there. We thought we were going to have goaltending trouble this (past) year, losing Chris Noonan (who turned pro in 2012). You look at it now and things just happened and everything seems to work out."
