The 2000-born native of Monument, CO spent the previous two seasons with the Spartans, and in 76 career games in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), Schuepbach tallied 44 total points to his name.
"It has been a pleasure to have Bjorn with us for two years," said Spartans head coach and general manager Brett Tryder. "He works hard everyday and constantly looks to improve his game. It is great when a player that works so hard is able to reach his goals. Schuep was great for us in all situations and has set the standard of the culture that we strive for at Seacoast. His game is really suited for the NESCAC and I have no doubt that he will continue to have success at the college level. I am looking forward to seeing him play at Conn. College and following his career.”
Schuepbach goes in the books as the 17th player in league history to choose Connecticut College, and 3rd player from the 2020-21 season. Alongside his teammate Tyler Harvey, the pair of Seacoast defensemen will join up with Kei Yasuda from the New Jersey 87's when they arrive on campus this fall.
“I am incredibly privileged and excited to continue my hockey career and further my education this fall at Connecticut College," said Schuepbach. "I’m grateful for the opportunity to play for Coach Ward and Coach Giordano, and look forward to the upcoming season.”
The EHL All-Star went on to show his appreciation towards Tryder and the Spartans program.
“I want to thank Coach Tryder personally for all the help, support, and trust throughout my two years playing for the Seacoast Spartans," added Schuepbach. "I’ve never met a coach who cares more for his players than Coach Tryder, he has committed his life to the sport and connecting with every player that comes across his path. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with this organization; I have learned and grown so much from my time with the Spartans. I also want to thank my family and teammates for all their support and dedication.”
