Spartans Second-Year, All-Star Captain Set to Join Soaring Eagles this Fall

EXETER, NH -- Kenny Maxwell, a forward for the Seacoast Spartans, has committed to Elmira College for the fall of 2023.

The '02 native of Oakhurst, NJ spent the past two seasons with the Spartans, and combining all of his regular season and postseason games together, Maxwell hit the ice for 94 career games in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL). Along the way the veteran forward notched 79 points to his credit on 36 goals and 43 assists.

“I am thankful for all that Kenny brought to the Spartan’s success and culture,” said Spartans head coach and general manager Brett Tryder. “He was our team leader and set the example from day one of training camp. He led by example and did the job of three men, as our only Captain. Kenny can play in all situations and is a hard-working and talented player. I am sure that he will be an asset to Elmira, which has a rich history in the college hockey world.”

Maxwell is the 22nd player in league history to commit to Elmira, as he joins Birch Gorman of the Protec Jr. Ducks, forming this year's two-player class from the EHL.

Looking back on his time with the Spartans in the EHL, Maxwell is beyond grateful all the experience he gained during his time in New Hampshire.

"My past two years at Seacoast were nothing short of amazing," said Maxwell. "I grew as a player, and more importantly, as a person. Being part of such a close-knit team and organization is something that you never want to end. When it did, I can confidently say that I left a better man and was ready for whatever life could throw my way. I am truly thankful for all of the people that I have met there and the endless support that I have received. Coach Tryder has prepared me in every way possible and I can’t wait to take what I have learned to Elmira College."
