While recently completing his senior season at the Alabama-Huntsville (WCAA), the 24-year-old Gosselin recorded 15 points (4+11) in 25 games for the Chargers while serving as team captain. He enjoyed his best season during the 2016-17 campaign when he was named the university’s first ever All-WCHA honoree as a third team selection and finished with career-highs in goals (nine) and points (18) while ranking second among all Chargers defensemen with nine assists in 30 games.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound defender amassed 58 points (20+38) in 118 career games at Alabama-Huntsville.
Prior to his four years at Alabama-Huntsville, the Brighton, MI, native collected 89 points (26+63) during three seasons with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs of the British Columbia Hockey League and six points (3+3) in 16 postseason contests from 2012-2015.
