Mike Sandor To Continue Hockey Career


On May 26, 2013 Mike Sandor signed to continue to play hockey, now at the college level. It has yet to be reported on NAHL.com or by the Johnstown Tomahawks. The reason might be because Sandor isn't playing in the US but instead in his homeland of Canada at Simon Fraser University.

Another reason might be because the BCIHL is a non-varsity college ice hockey league.

Simon Fraser University plays in the BCIHL. Here a little about the league via their official web site:

The British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League was created with the purpose of offering a venue for competitive, high-caliber ice hockey for players beyond their junior and minor hockey careers.
The BCIHL was launched in 2006 and now includes seven member teams: Eastern Washington University, Okanagan College, Selkirk College, Simon Fraser University, Thompson Rivers University, Trinity Western University and the University of Victoria. Former members include the University of Northern British Columbia (2006-07) and the University of the Fraser Valley (2006-2011).
Each BCIHL team plays a 24-game league schedule that is comprised of two 2-game home-and-away series with each competitor. The top five teams from the league's regular season then face-off in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League Championships, a round-robin format tournament held each year in March.

Sandor played in 44 games last season for the Tomahawks. In those 44 games he scored 2 goals, 4 assists, good for 6 points, had only 4 penalty minutes all season, and was a minus 2.

During our "Year In Review", which you can read here, (this was part 2 of part 3 for the forwards) we told you Sandor was a classic hard working player who wasn't flashy but always got the job done.

We wish Sandor the best of luck and we'll be keeping an eye on him during the 2013-2014 season.
