“University of Victoria (U of Vic) was an easy decision to make after learning how professional the hockey staff is, and how U of Vic is one of the best schools in the country.”Stated Shwaluk.“I will be going to U of Vic for business, however I am still undecided in what I will be majoring in yet. I am beyond excited to call U pf Vic my home for the next 4 years.”
“Brock was a real professional here. His work ethic and passion for the game resonated amongst our players. He was a leader both on and off the ice. We wish him nothing but the best.” Stated Oil Caps Management.
Shwaluk had a short time with the Oil Caps but enjoyed his stay. “Although only playing with the Virden Oil Caps for one season, it was one of the best experiences I could have asked for. From the coaching staff, to my billets Greg and Cathy, and the fans, they have all made me feel welcome since day one. I wouldn’t have wanted to finish my 20 year old year anywhere else!” Stated Shwaluk.
The Oil Capitals would like to wish Brock all the best in his future endeavors.
