Kerbrat, Philippon, and Matejka Earn League Honors

BOSTON, MA -- The Eastern Hockey League (EHL) and the Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP) are pleased to announce that Wiggle Kerbrat (New Hampshire Avalanche), Colin Philippon (Vermont Lumberjacks), and Andreas Matejka (New England Wolves) have been named the 2018-19 Student-Athletes of the Year.

Each player turned heads both on the ice and off the ice, exemplifying the idea of being a 'student-athlete.' Whether it was community service hours, or additional time spent studying, each individual set themselves apart from the rest.

"This is our second year recognizing a group of top student-athletes, and I believe it truly shows how dedicated our players are both on and off the ice," said Mark Kumpel, the league's Director of Hockey Operations. "Our organizations are helping these players grow as young men, and much of this growth takes place away from the rink. Of course what takes place on the ice is important, but all the college coaches also ask about what takes place when our guys aren't playing hockey. The college coaches are looking for players who will help them win hockey games, but also earn an education while they play. These three individuals all have very bright futures ahead of them, because they are dedicated to aspects of their life other than just hockey. On behalf of the league, I would like to congratulate Wiggle, Colin, and Andreas, for all the work they put in this past year."
