The Langley Chiefs are pleased to announce that Dennis Robertson and Matt Cronin have both committed to NCAA Division I scholarships, setting a new single season high for committed players with 10.
Robertson, who is in his second year with the Chiefs, will be attending Brown University, joining Chiefs alumni and former defensive partner Evan Atkinson; it is uncertain whether or not he will go next year or the year after. ‘Doc’ as he is known to teammates has excelled in an increased role this year and was recently co-named as the Chiefs top defenseman during the 2009-2010 season.
One of the Chiefs other young defensemen will also be heading to college in the future. Matt Cronin, a Langley native is off to Merrimack in the 2012 season. Cronin, who came to the Chiefs from the Langley Minor hockey program, has progressed almost every game and has become a dominating physical presence who has started to add even more to his game will become a key cog in the d-core next fall for Langley.
“Both guys have worked exceptionally hard and we are always glad to see our players locked up,” says Associate Coach and Associate GM Barry Wolff, who reiterated that it was nice to get the scholarships firmed up with the playoffs looming.
The entire Langley Chiefs organization would like to congratulate Dennis and Matt on their commitments.
