WEST VALLEY CITY, UTAH – The Utah Grizzlies are moving onto the second round in the ECHL for the Kelly Cup playoffs, thanks in part to defenceman Austin Crossley, originally from Fort St. John.

Born in Fort St. John, his professional hockey career started in Prince George in 2015, for the Prince George Spruce Kings in the BCHL, before moving to the Nanaimo Clippers the following year.

From 2016 to 2018, he played for the Prince Albert Raiders in the WHL, and in the following three years, he played for the Prince George Cougars.

In the 2019-2020 season, he played on the Fargo Force in the USHL.

Finally, he’s playing with the Utah Grizzlies as defence this season.

Thanks to a win on Wednesday, May 4th, beating the Tulsa Oilers 5-2, the Grizzlies will be moving onto the second round of the playoffs.

Next up, they will face the Rapid City Rush on Friday, May 6th.
