LEAMINGTON, ONTARIO – The Leamington Flyers would like to congratulate forwards Ryan MacPherson and Connor MacPherson as they commit to the University of New Hampshire to play NCAA D1 hockey.
“I feel like UNH is the right place for me,” Ryan states. “My experience in Leamington has been amazing so far. It’s helped me grow and develop as a player and a person and I definitely feel ready for this exciting next step in my development.”
“I’m very excited to commit to such a great school,” Connor agrees. “I would like to thank the Flyers for giving me the chance to play for them this year and helping me develop as a player. I can’t put into words how happy I am.”
Coming into tonight’s game, Ryan has 9 goals and 23 assists for 32 points in 30 games, while Connor is pacing the Flyers with 18 goals and 18 assists for 36 points.
“We are extremely happy for Ryan, Connor and the family,” says Leamington general manager, Justin Solcz. “They are great hockey players and great people that have worked very hard on and off the ice to earn this opportunity.
Flyers head coach, Dale Mitchell says. “They have worked so hard to improve their games, so I am not surprised by this achievement. They are excellent hockey players who want to learn and get better every day. I know they will be fantastic players for UNH.”
