Kegan was the Captain for the Icedogs this past season and was the team MVP and scoring leader with 76 points. (28 goals, 48 assists) and a plus 20 plus/minus rating.
Couture had this to say about committing to NCAA D-3 Gustavus, "It has always been a goal of mine to play hockey at the D-1 or D-3 level and that has come true. I had a few opportunities of where to play but Gustavus was the best fit for me. They have a good coach and very good facilities and a track record of moving players into their communities with a great education and opportunities to even play pro hockey. It is hard for anyone to ask for more the that. I also want to thank Coach Vichorek and the Icedog organization for doing everything he said he would to help me play at the collegiate level. I am glad I chose Bozeman as it is a great place to play and I was treated so well I would encourage anyone and everyone to play there".
"Kegan earned this opportunity to play at the NCAA college level. He was always committed on and off the ice and worked hard to achieve one of his goals. I am very proud of him and congratulations to him and his family as this is a big honor for them as well. Kegan will be extremely hard to replace as a player and as a person. The Icedog organization would also like to thank Kegan for his time with us and will be tracking how he does in the future," said Coach Vichorek.
