The Fort McMurray Oil Barons are pleased to announce that 19 year old forward Alex Cromwell (McKinney, TX) has accepted a scholarship to attend and play for Providence College (NCAA Div. I). The Providence Friars play in the Hockey East Conference.
Alex is completing his 2nd year with the Oil Barons where he just participated in his 100th career game. His contributions are not limited to goals and assists. Alex brings a tremendous amount of energy and enthusiasm to the organization and is a great role model for all players. He’s physical, committed and has played a big part in the success the highly ranked Oil Barons have experienced this year.
The Oil Barons organization would like to congratulate Alex and his family and wish him all the best in his future endeavours both academically and athletically.
Alex is the 4th Oil Baron to commit to a NCAA program joining teammates Mitch Vanderlaan (Cornell University), Kevin Miller (Ohio State University), and Tanner Jaillet (Denver University).
