PHILADELPHIA FLYERS ELITE ALUMNI HAVING NOTABLE SUCCESS AT THE NCAA LEVEL
Three alums nominated for 2021 Hobey Baker Award
Philadelphia, PA (February 22, 2021)- Philadelphia Flyers Elite youth hockey Club alumni are having notable success during the current 2020-21 NCAA Division I season, both with production on the ice and recognition in the college hockey community.
When the Hobey Baker Award nominees were announced earlier this month, three Flyers Elite alumni were included on the list. Chayse Primeau is currently leading Omaha in points with 22 points (8 goals, 14 assists) in 20 games; Carson Briere, in his first season with Mercyhurst University, is the team leader in scoring with 18 points in 18 games; and his teammate, Jonathan Bendorf, leads Mercyhurst with 11 goals and is second behind Briere in points with 15. All three have had their season-long performances recognized with their Hobey Baker nominations.
A few other alumni are enjoying a good start to their Freshman campaigns, including Mikey Colella (Northern Michigan) and Max Kouznetsov (Canisius) have both scored their first NCAA career goal and goaltender Alex Aslanidis (Western Michigan) recently earned first NCAA career shutout. Sophomore Matt Cassidy (Ohio State) also recently scored his first NCAA goal.
The success these and other alumni of Philadelphia Flyers Elite at the NCAA level is a result of their commitment and dedication put forth throughout their time with the club and beyond, as they continue to earn success at a very high level. 84 current and former players of the club have committed to a NCAA Division I school, 20 of which are currently competing at this level.
Additional announcements about the club, including tryout information, will be announced in the days and weeks ahead. Be sure to check out FlyersElite.com for the latest information and follow the club on Facebook and Twitter (@FlyersEliteAAA) and Instagram (@PhiladelphiaFlyersElite).
