From the wind-blown, icy landscape of the province of Manitoba, forward Colin Burston has seen his hockey career take him from one end of the continent to the other, most recently to the east coast of the US at Brown University.
The native of Winnipeg, Manitoba was ahead of the curve playing-wise at a young age. He developed his early game at the Bantam AAA and Midget AAA level with the Notre Dame Hounds and the Argos in Saskatchewan. He joined the Wenatchee Wild in his first year of junior hockey and buried 16 goals along with 19 assists. He chose to play closer to home the following season, skating with the Fargo Force (USHL) for the first half of the 2015-16 season but returned to Wenatchee over the Christmas break. The following season he exploded offensively with 25 goals and 34 assists, earning a Division I commit to Brown University in Providence, RI.
Following an injury and surgery at the conclusion of the Wild’s 2017 playoff run, Burston returned to play in just a pair of games for Brown in his freshman season, but the following year (2018-19) he appeared in 31 games, collecting 5 goals and 14 points overall. He’s now spending the summer preparing for his junior year.
