Proud to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Thanks to my friends, family, former coaches and everyone else who has helped me along the way. @NanooksHockey

Dubois has close relationships with former Vernon Vipers Steven and Chris Jandric. The brothers spent time together playing midget hockey in Prince George alongside Dubois. “It’s great to have guys like Steve and Chris help me adjust to college life”, stated Dubois. “We’ve been great friends for years and the thought of playing college hockey together seems too good to be true.” Chase joins former West Kelowna Warriors forwards Kyle Marino and Kylar Hope who will be entering their senior years with UAF.
“We are thrilled for Chase and his opportunity to play college hockey at the University of Alaska Fairbanks”, stated Warriors General Manager and Head Coach Brandon West. “Chase has worked hard over this Summer and prepared himself for this opportunity that he’s earned. UAF is getting a quality player and person.”
The Warriors would like to thank Chase for his contributions to the club and wish him luck in all of his future endeavors.
