EHLP Alum Set to Join Lancers this Fall

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.

EHLP Alum Set to Join Amcats this Fall

LACONIA, NH -- Brendan Boncore, a goaltender for the New England Wolves, has committed to Anna Maria College for the Fall of 2018. In his first season with the Wolves at the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) level, the '97 racked up four wins and was named the Goaltender of the Week in December (TSR Hockey Stars of the Week #14). Prior to this past season, Boncore was one of the top goaltenders in the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP), as he went 18-7-3 with the Boston Bandits during 2016-17 campaign.

"Brendan is a worker. He set out to accomplish a goal and achieved it, and we at the Wolves are very proud of him," said Wolves head coach and general manager Andrew Trimble. "Anna Maria and Coach McCauley are getting an underrated netminder with a big upside. We wish him and the Amcats tremendous success!”

EHLP Alum Set to Join Lancers this Fall

TEWKSBURY, MA -- Matt Roe, a forward for the Boston Jr. Rangers, has committed to Worcester State University for the Fall of 2018. The '97 from Rochester, NY spent time with the Rangers at the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP) level during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons. For the most recent campaign (2017-18), Roe re-joined the Rangers at the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) level in early December. In 26 total games, Roe notched 11 points to his name.

"We are very happy for Matt," said Rangers head coach and general manager Rich DeCaprio. "Matt played for our EHLP team, and then ended up playing for the Rochester Monarchs for a little over a year. When the NCDC wasn't what he was expecting, he came back and had a great remainder of the season with us, as we won the Boston Division. He will have a great 4 years at Worcester State!"

As DeCaprio mentioned, Roe's time with the Rangers began at the EHLP level, where he racked up 30 points in 57 career games. The '97 then returned home for a brief period, but ultimately decided to come back to the EHL, and was a key factor in the Rangers' successful 2017-18 season.
