Former Halifax Moosehead Goetz commits to Waterloo Warriors


It was announced on Wednesday that former Halifax Mooseheads forward and captain Keigan Goetz has committed to the University of Waterloo Warriors.

Goetz, a 20-year-old right-winger from New Hamburg, Ontario played parts of three seasons in the Ontario Hockey League with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds before he was dealt to the Barrie Colts in his third season. He was released by the Colts, and joined the Halifax Mooseheads on September 26, 2016.

Goetz gained a reputation as a hard nosed type of player, culminating with being named captain of the Mooseheads on February 2nd following the vacancy left when defenceman Taylor Ford was shipped to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies during the QMJHL trading period.

In 59 regular season games in Halifax, Goetz would score eight goals, and total 20 points. He finished second in the QMJHL in penalty minutes amassing 144. In six playoff games, Goetz scored once and had three points along with four penalty minutes.
