DENNIS, MA -- Alex Ouellet, a defenseman for the Seahawks Hockey Club, has committed to Albertus Magnus College for the fall of 2019. The '98 is in his second season with the Seahawks, and to date, he's tallied 11 assists in 48 career games in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL).
"Albertus Magnus College will be entering its first year as an NCAA Division III program, and a player of Alex's character and accountability is a great way to start the foundation of a new program," said Seahawks head coach and general manager Bill Zaniboni.
As Zaniboni mentioned, Albertus Magnus will be kicking-off their inaugural season next Fall. For a new program, building that foundation is key, and so far, there have already been four EHL players that have committed to the school.
Here are the other three players that have decided on the Falcons for the next step in their academic and athletic careers:
Kyle DePalma (New Jersey 87's)
Scot Lawson (Connecticut Chiefs)
Thomas Walker (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights)
Ouellet and the Seahawks have just one game left against the Connecticut RoughRiders, before heading home for the holiday break. This afternoon at 12:30pm, two of the top teams in the South Division of the New England Conference will hit the ice for their fourth matchup of the season. In the previous three meetings, two of the games went to overtime and one contest went all the way to a shootout to determine a winner.
