Revolution Forward Set to Join Teammate next Fall

WARMINSTER, PA -- Brayden Patricia, a forward for the Philadelphia Revolution, has committed to Fitchburg State for the fall of 2021.

The 2000-born native of Stewartsville, NJ recently finished his first and only season in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), and in 41 total games, Patricia scored 28 goals and collected 27 assists to his name.

"He was probably the best player in the league all-around,” said Revolution general manager Chris Kanaly. “He has all the attributes of a well-prepared NCAA player. He’ll do really well, based on his hockey ability and hockey IQ.”

As Kanaly references Patricia's all-around game, his point is proven in a near-even split between goals and assists. Patricia will now bring both his goal-scoring and the play-making abilities with him to the next level.

" [Chris] Kanaly was a big reason why I had a lot of schools interested in me,” said Patricia. “He was the one on the front lines, calling them [schools] and not just for me, but also for all of the guys on the team. He was the one fighting for us on a consistent basis."

When Patricia arrives at Fitchburg State this fall, he will enjoy the comfort of already having played with one of his teammates. Trevor Clemson also chose the Revolution for his final year of junior hockey, and then chose the Falcons' program for his future, back in early March. Patricia is excited to have Clemson by his side, and can't wait to get started this fall.

"Hockey is the big sport on campus there, and I’m just excited to play well and play for your school with something big like that and in front of the student body," concluded Patricia.
