He is one of the most exciting and talented players to don a Bomber jersey in the team's rich history and the sky is the limit for Montreal's Donavan Houle Villenuve.
Houle played three years for the Maroon and White between 2017 and 2020 putting up 134 points in 155 games.
Houle always saved his best for the post season and delivered 21 points in 20 career games and no telling how many points he would of put up if this past playoff run wasn't cut short due to Covid 19.
The Bombers looked poised to win their first league championship since 1993 and Houle would of been an intrical part.
I will never forget going down to the Bomber locker room after the decision was made last March to scrap the rest of the playoffs and seeing the looks on all the players faces.
Donavan, took it especially hard and actually broke down and cried in disappointment realizing his junior hockey career had come to an end.
Even though we won't get to see Houle in a Bomber uniform ever again, his career is a long way from being over.
Like so many Bombers the last few years, Houle will get a chance to play in the NCAA with the University of Maine.
The Black Bears like everyone else in the hockey and sports world are waiting to get on the ice . Due to Covid 19, they are limited to just practising right now and Houle is chomping at the bit to get back into action.
I firmly believe with his amazing speed, not to mention great vision of the ice, I feel a professional career is not out of question.
Even though Houle is a tremendous offensive hockey player, he is also a very good team-mate and was one of the most popular Bombers in the locker room his three seasons.
We caught up to Donavan from the University of Maine and he joined us on today's Norman Sportsline program. We touched on his great career in the SJHL and what the future may hold.
