Applecore Defenseman Set to Join Golden Bears in the Fall of 2017

BREWSTER, NY -- John O'Brien, a defenseman for the New York Applecore, has committed to Western New England for the Fall of 2017. In his first season with the Applecore, the '97 tallied 20 points in 42 total games. The native of New York is excited about kicking off his collegiate hockey career this Fall, and took some time to reflect on his time spent in the EHL.

"Playing in the Eastern Hockey League the past 2 seasons has given me maximum exposure to NCAA college hockey programs," said O'Brien. "The competition throughout the regular season as well as showcases has given me an opportunity to take my game to the next level. I want to thank my family and the entire New York Applecore and New York Bobcat organizations for helping me achieve my goal."
