The Calgary native went on to play one season for the BCHL Merritt Centennials, registering 33 points in 57 games. From there, he was recruited to the Princeton Tigers where, in four seasons, accumulated 85 points in 126 career games. He led all Princeton Tigers in scoring 20 points in 30 games this season. The 24-year-old, six-foot 180-pound defenceman also ranked third on the team in shots on goal (74) and power-play assists (10).

”Josh had an outstanding collegiate career at Princeton,” said Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning.

“He has good vision and playmaking ability, and can contribute in all three zones. We’re excited to see him play at the professional level.”
