Rangers Second-Year Forward Set to Join Corsairs this Fall

TEWKSBURY, MA -- Spencer Sykes, a forward for the Boston Jr. Rangers, has committed to UMass Dartmouth (UMD) for the fall of 2024.

The '03 native of Colorado Springs, CO recently finished his second and final season with the Rangers, and over the course of 97 career games in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), Sykes tallied 43 total points to his credit on 14 goals and 29 assists.

"Spencer has been a great player and teammate for us these last 2 seasons," said Rangers head coach and general manager Rich DeCaprio. "He’s a big part of the success we have had as a team. He’s really grown into a college player here and its been great to watch him develop. He has first class speed, and with his size and puck skills, he will really flourish at the next level. We are very happy for Spence and can’t wait to watch him at the NCAA level!"

When Sykes reaches that next level, he will be joined by three other players from the around the EHL, whom each also committed to join UMD. When Sykes arrives on campus, he will team up with both Sam Boos and Brennan Pecararo from the New Hampshire Avalanche, and Noah Webster from H.C. Rhode Island.

"Having played for the Boston Jr. Rangers over the past 2 seasons, I have grown not only as a player but also as a teammate," said Sykes. "The BJR organization has taught me many valuable lessons about teamwork, leadership, and sportsmanship. I am grateful for the opportunities and memories that I have had at BJR and look forward to making more at UMass Dartmouth. It has been an honor and a privilege to be a part of this incredible organization and I would like to thank Coach DeCaprio and the whole coaching staff for helping me achieve my goals. I am looking forward to applying everything I have learned in juniors to the NCAA collegiate level."
