Ballhorn headed to university

Kelowna Rockets defenceman Gordie Ballhorn will be playing university hockey this fall.

The 20 year-old, who saw his eligibility end in the Western Hockey League at the conclusion of this season, will suit up for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.

Ballhorn, who was born in Wetaskawin, Alberta played three seasons with the Rockets, dressing in 175 regular season games. 

The 6 foot, 195 pound blueliner was named the Rockets unsung hero in 2018.
