ANCHORAGE – Alaska Anchorage head hockey coach Dave Shyiak announced Wednesday that sophomore Corbin Karl will not be returning to the Seawolves for the second half of the season after the holiday break.

“Corbin has decided it would be more financially feasible to pursue an education and play hockey back at home in Canada or at a Div. III school,” said Shyiak. “We certainly understand how difficult it can be when you are paying all this money and not playing. Corbin is a fine young man and we respect his decision. We thank him for all his efforts and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Karl, a local of Foremost, Alberta, who has yet to dress in a game this year, posted three goals and three assists in 24 games during his rookie campaign.

The Seawolves are on the road this weekend at Minnesota State (Dec. 7-8), before returning to host Minnesota Duluth, Dec. 14-15. UAA will then have two weekends off before facing Wisconsin on Jan. 4-5.
