Gomercic – a survivor of the horrific April 6th bus crash near Tisdale, SK. – will join his fellow Broncos teammate Bryce Fiske in Ontario. Fiske had earlier signed with UOIT in June. With Gomercic’s signing, he is the final 1997-born Humboldt player to commit to a U-Sports program for the fall.
After playing his bantam and midget hockey for the Winnipeg Warriors – where he put up 27 goals and 52 points in 36 games in his final season – Gomercic took his talents to the Steinbach Pistons of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound winger played two seasons in southern Manitoba before joining Humboldt for the 2016-17 season. Gomercic scored 15 goals and added 32 assists for 47 total points as a Bronco in two seasons of play.
Gomercic is expected to play a substantial role with the Ridgebacks this season. The University of Ontario Institute of Technology finished the 2017-18 season with a 15-15 record after previously finishing back-to-back regular seasons with winning records. The Ridgebacks see their first action of 2018-19 on September 15th as the Western Mustangs roll into Oshawa.
