Jr. Ducks alum Urch signs with NOJHL’s Gold Miners
The Kirkland Lake Gold Miners of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League (NOJHL) have signed forward Taylor Urch for the upcoming 2016-17 season.
Urch, an Anaheim native, comes to the Gold Miners from the Anaheim Jr. Ducks 18U AAA team that won a California state championship this past spring.
During the last nine years, Urch has helped his teams win or tie 72 percent of their games, including winning two California state championships, a USA Hockey Pacific District AAA championship, a high school championship with Villa Park High School, participating in a U.S. National Skills Competition and playing in the USA Hockey Youth Nationals twice.
“I am excited to come to Kirkland Lake and play for coach Marc Lafleur and the Gold Miners,” said Urch. “They have an excellent program and I look forward to helping the team bring home the NOJHL championship trophy to Kirkland Lake again this season.”
