The '02 native of Florissant, MO is in his second season with the Express, and over the course of his career in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), Boschert owns a record of 29-16-2 in 47 regular season starts. The veteran netminder also went 6-2-0 in last year's playoffs.
"Jack is the back bone of this group," said Express head coach Nic Cota. "It has been an absolute pleasure to have the opportunity to coach this young man. His work ethic and desire to be the best is something special. I’m so happy for Jack and his family as he will go compete in a very high-level conference. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for the best goaltender in the EHL."
While the end of Cota's statement is bold, it could also be viewed is accurate based on what Boschert has accomplished throughout his time in the league. Looking back on last year's playoff run for the Express, along with winning six of his eight starts, Boschert posted a 1.07 GAA and a .967 save percentage. The netminder was virtually unbeatable throughout the postseason, carrying the Express on his back all the way to the 2022 EHL Championship Game.
That performance, along with the start he got off to this season, led to Boschert's selection to the EHL All-Star Team that took on Nazareth College and SUNY Brockport back in October. Boschert gained invaluable experience from the weekend in the New York and caught the attention of Superior. It only took a single visit for Boschert to know that this was the spot for him, making history as the first player in league history to commit directly to one of the top programs in all of NCAA Division III hockey.
"I would like to thank my family, friends, and coaches for all the support through the years–especially to my family for giving their time and efforts to help push me to be my best day in and day out,” said Boschert. “Also to the Express Hockey Club organization for giving me the opportunities and chances I’ve had over the past two seasons, helping me grow not only as a hockey player but a person as well. A true testimony of this is the memories, bond, and the brotherhood I’ve made with all my teammates. Thank you to Coach Cota and Coach Kyle [Robertson] for all their guidance and support through this process."
With this weight now off of his shoulders, Boschert's focus now turns towards attempting to make an encore performance in the upcoming postseason. The word 'revenge' is clear, as Boschert looks to lead his team back to Providence.
