Extremely honoured and excited to announce I have committed to play D1 hockey for Lake Superior State University this coming semester. A huge thank you goes out to all my family, friends, teammates, coaches and the Express organization who have all helped me along the way #Lakers— Alex Ambrosio (@ambro_10) December 22, 2017
The commitment is effective immediately.
The 20 year old Burnaby native was in his third and final season in an Express uniform. Prior to the start of the season he was named captain for 2017-18.
This season he had 9 goals and 16 assists for 25 points in 33 games. Those numbers were second highest on the Express as of the Christmas break. His 16 assists matches his career high in that category that he accumulated last year in 50 games. Ambrosio was also well on his way to surpass the 29 points he tallied in 2016-17.
In 134 career BCHL games, all with the Express he had 30 goals and 42 assists for 72 points. He also had 1 assist in 4 playoff games in 2016.
During his time in an Express uniform, Amboriso left an indelible mark on and off the ice as a first class individual. That is the mark he will leave behind as he moves on to the next stage of his hockey career.
Lake Superior State plays in the WCHA conference. Previous Express alumni to commit to Lake Superior State include goaltender Gordy Defiel. And former captain Mitch Nardi.
The Express would like to congratulate Alex
on this opportunity. And thank you for everything you have given to this organization. The BCHL is about moving players on to the next level, this is a well deserved next step.
