The Vernon Vipers Hockey Club is pleased to announce that Liam Coughlin, a 95 born forward from South Boston has committed to come to Vernon. Coughlin has played last season at Catholic Memorial High School. Catholic Memorial has produced several Viper players as of late which include Marc Hetnik, Mike Collins and Garrett Noonan.
Coughlin, a 6’4 and 195lb centre, had 27 goals and 24 assists in 21 games played for Catholic Memorial last season. Coach Hanson was very high on Liam and said that he might be the best player he has had play for him at CM.
Liam was also named Massachusetts Division 1 player of the Year and was taken 30th overall by Dubuque of the USHL. Coughlin attended the Montreal Canadiens Pro Draft Camp at the beginning of June and is garnering a lot of attention for the upcoming NHL draft.
Head Coach Jason Williamson is very excited about landing Liam and says “Liam is a player we have been after for quite some time. He is a big body that can score but also plays with an edge that most players from South Boston have. He will add a lot of versatility to our lineup.”
