WALPOLE, MA -- Will Ahearn, a forward for the Walpole Express, has committed to Worcester State University for the Fall of 2018. The '97 just finished his second season with the Express, and his first at the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) level. Ahearn racked up 31 points in 41 games for Walpole during the 2016-17 season in the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP), and then this past year, finished 17 points in 47 total EHL games.
"Will was a staple in our lineup this season," said Express head coach and general manager Jon Lounsbury. "He played every bit of his 6'3 frame and was an every situation guy for us. Will is truly one of the hardest working players I have coached and there is no doubt in my mind that he will have a lot of success at the next level. Will's commitment on and off the ice is second to none."
With Ahearn's commitment, Walpole now has 13 players from their 2017-18 team who will be kicking off their collegiate hockey careers this Fall. Over half of those players (7), spent time developing in the EHLP before climbing the ladder to the EHL.
