Portage Terriers’ standout defenceman Dean Steward has accepted a scholarship with the University of Nebraska Omaha. This is the 2nd Division one scholarship awarded to a member of the Portage Terriers this year. Previously Stewart’s blueline partner Brett Orr committed to Bentley University.
The past year has been very rewarding for both players. They were members of the 2014-15 RBC championship team and won a Gold Medal with Team West at the 2015 World Junior A Challenge. Stewart is also on the NHL Central Scouting list.
“They are very deserving and we look forward to following Dean and Brett as their academic and athletic careers progress,” said Terriers’ GM/Head Coach Blake Spiller.
