Men’s Hockey News

Coleman Vollrath has turned his focus from saving pucks to saving the environment.

Standing tall between the pipes with the Victoria Royals from 2012-16, the former Western Hockey League goaltender earned a full academic scholarship that he is now using to pursue his next greatest passion.

“In Victoria, the fans were awesome and the organization treated us incredibly well, but the best part about playing there was being able to spend time on the Pacific Ocean,” Vollrath told Junior Hockey Magazine’s CHL Leaders presented by Kubota. “It was just incredible. That really got me passionate about environmental issues and wanting to be critical of how I am impacting the Earth and how we as humans are impacting the Earth.

Currently pursuing a master’s degree in geography from the University of Calgary, Vollrath continues to use many of the life lessons he learned at the rink to help him succeed in the classroom.
