Riley Brandt was one of the hardest hitting forwards in the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) as captain of the Vernon Vipers last season. Known as a tough, physical player, the first-year forward joined the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) Paladins this year, where he currently leads the team in points.
“I never ever thought about joining the military or anything. It all revolved around hockey. Coming here, getting the free schooling, you’re obligated to serve after you graduate. I’m excited to do that. I’m excited to serve for my country.”
