Surrey, BC - The Surrey Eagles Hockey Club is thrilled to announce that defenseman Craig Wyszomirski has committed to attend Merrimack College, beginning in the 2013-2014 season.
The 20-year-old blue liner joined the Eagles at the start of this season and has posted five goals and 14 assists in 30 games. A native of Mahwah, New Jersey, Wyszomirski has already played in the NCAA after spending the 2011-2012 season at Providence College where he played in four games.
"I think Craig has really taken his game to the next level with us this year," said Eagles Head Coach and GM Matt Erhart. "He's a big physical force, but he can also make plays, and he's been good on the power play and penalty kill. We're very excited for him."
Merrimack is located in North Landover, Massachusetts. The Warriors play in the NCAA's Division I Hockey East Association.
"Hockey East is one of the best conferences in college hockey," said Wyszomirski. "I'm just ecstatic to be committed to Merrimack. It's a small campus which is great because everyone knows each other. The hockey team is pretty popular on campus, and they're renovating their rink as well. It just seemed like a great place to be and a great environment."
Wyszomirski becomes the sixth member of the Eagles to commit to an NCAA school, joining Devon Toews (Quinnipiac, 2013), Michael Stenerson (Alaska Anchorage, 2013), Dan O'Keefe (Yale, 2014), Brady Shaw (Bentley, 2013) and Michael Santaguida (Vermont, 2013).
The Eagles would like to congratulate Wyszomirski on his accomplishment.
