The '02 native of Castro Valley, CA recently finished up his 3rd and final season with the Seahawks. McManus joined program towards the end of the 2020-21 campaign, and over the course of 106 career games in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), the All-Star forward tallied 86 total points to his credit.
"Scott arrived during the COVID season as his U18 team had to shut down," said Seahawks head coach and general manager Bill Zaniboni. "Although young, Scott had great compete and the drive to get better everyday. Scott was then drafted into the NAHL and started the following season there. When Scott came back he had a goal and that was to lead the Seahawks and make sure he did his part to have a successful season(s). We are excited for Scott and his family."
As Zaniboni mentioned, McManus grew as a leader for the Seahawks, finishing out his junior hockey career as the captain of the team this past year. Overall, the west coast playmaker is beyond grateful that his hockey journey took him east, as he'll now play his college hockey in Boston.
"I am very excited to announce my commitment to play hockey at Suffolk University next season," said McManus. "I would like to thank my family and friends for all the sacrifices and support I've received that has led me to this point. I'd also like to thank the Seahawks Hockey Club and Coach Zaniboni for helping me grow as a player and person these past three seasons. I am thrilled to play under Coach [Shawn] McEachern and look forward to continuing to grow in my hockey and academic career at Suffolk University."
McManus is the 37th player in league history choose Suffolk, as he will team up with Gavin Havens and Daniel McKiernan of the New Hampshire Avalanche when he arrives on campus in the fall.
