Newmarket Hurricanes defenceman Alex Bontje (photo credit - Brian Watts/OJHL Images) has confirmed his commitment to join the Robert Morris University Colonials beginning with the 2014-15 Atlantic Hockey season.
The 6'1", 194 lbs. native of Nobleton, Ontario joined the Hurricanes
last season after playing a single game in 2010-11 as an affiliated
midget. Bontje made an immediate impact on the 'Canes blueline
registering five goals and twelve points during his rookie season in 46
games played with the first place club. The defensive concious
rearguard is one of Newmarket's leaders this season and has recorded
three points thus far while logging heavy minutes.
Congratulations to Alex and best of luck the remainder of his junior career!
