He has been an outstanding young man on and off the ice, and I am very confident that Thayne will be an impact player and a model student athlete for the Eagles. We here at the Cheyenne Stampede wish him the very best in his pursuit of his hockey dream,” Head Coach Gary Gill said about Trumbull. “Going through all my options was hard, and it was a tough choice picking a school to commit too, but I feel Daniel Webster will be a good fit for me,” Trumbull said. “I moved from home early in my career so I would be able to play in college one day. With Juniors now coming to an end I am really excited to take my next step. Daniel Webster will give me the opportunity to play competitive hockey at the DIII level, while providing me a quality education.” Trumbull ended his Junior Career with 194 games, 96 goals, 103 assists and 1.206 points per game average. The Stampede will surely miss Trumbull next season, but look forward to cheering him on as he starts his college career with Daniel Webster College. *Feature photo: Monty and Trumbull/Pitchengine Communities* #shortgo #news
