The Coquitlam Express are extremely pleased to announce that Jace Hennig has committed to Merrimack College, Division I NCAA, for fall of 2014.
Hennig, a native of Port Moody, BC, played 4 games with the Express as an affiliate before being signed by the club at the trade deadline on January 10th. Since then the 16 year old forward picked up his first BCHL points, a goal and assist, during a 5-2 win in Victoria on January 20.
"This is great news" said Head Coach Jon Calvano, "and a good commitment for local young kids to see how our program benefits the younger players". The BCHL prides itself on being a feeder league to NCAA and CIS schools and giving the opportunity for young hockey players to further develop their skills while receiving post-secondary education.
Hennig joins Alex Petan (Michigan Tech, 2012) and Rajan Sidhu (RIT, 2012) as the third Express player to commit this season.
