The Merritt Centennials are pleased to announce the commitment of 19-year-old defenceman Kevin Lohan to the University of Michigan for September 2013 or 2014.
In his rookie season with the Centennials, Lohan has 14 points in 40 games.
“Kevin has shown tremendous growth here as a player and is well deserving of this opportunity. He has been a tremendous addition to our hockey club as his character has fit in seamlessly with our environment here. He has become a big-minute player for us and has provided a very calming presence amongst our defence core. With his size and intelligence he has been able to establish himself as an elite player in our league," said Cents coach and GM Luke Pierce.
Pierce continued, "The Wolverines program is perhaps the most prestigious in all of college hockey and has produced several NHL stars over the years. We know Kevin’s goal is to join that group one day and we are excited for him in his opportunity to achieve another life-long dream."
