HAVERHILL, MA -- Brian Smith, a forward for the Valley Jr. Warriors, has committed to Worcester State University for the Fall of 2018. The '97 played the past two seasons in the Warriors program, spending a year apiece at both the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) and the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP) levels. This past season in particular, Smith racked up 26 points in 40 games in the EHL.
"Brian is a tenacious player on the puck,” said Warriors head coach and general manager Andy Heinze. “If he loses it from a back check he’ll stop hard and go after it hard instead of making a big loop. He’s a very competitive, and he's always had the ability to score; he did that this year for us."
Two seasons ago during the 2016-17 campaign, Smith played the entire year for the Warriors' EHLP team. The native of Dracut, MA was one of the top scorers in the league that season, racking up 68 points in 41 games.
