The Strathroy Rockets are proud to announce that our own #23 Nick Boyer (Port Stanley, Ontario) has accepted a scholarship offer to attend Mercyhurst University, an NCAA D1 school located in Erie, Pennsylvania for the 2015-2016 Hockey season.
The Mercyhurst Lakers play out of the AHA (Atlantic Hockey Conference) of the NCAA Division 1 Hockey League.
Nick has been a Strathroy Rocket for the past two seasons having played in 85 regular season games with 25 goals and 48 assists for 73 points.
This year Nick is an Alternate Captain and led the team in scoring with 47 points in 49 games with 111 PIMS.
Nick Boyer is a tenacious forechecker and always finishes his check. He is not afraid to go hard to the net and is rewarded more often than not.
Nick will finish his junior career before enrolling full time at Mercyhurst.
Another former Rocket, Chris Bodo is in his 2nd season with Mercyhurst and received his scholarship while a member of the Rockets as well.
