Alumni Spotlight | NCAA Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference

 

OTTAWA, ON – There were eighteen Central Canada Hockey League alumni playing in the NCAA Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) during the 2021-22 school year. Below we recap the seasons for players such as Ethan Manderville, David Jankowski, Jordan Power, Elliott McDermott, John Beaton, Ryan Richardson, Yaniv Perets, and Connor Murphy.

The Ottawa, ON native and two-time CCHL Champion with the Ottawa Jr Senators took a huge step forward in his development this past season where he totalled 16 points (4G, 12A) in 39 games of action as a Junior. The 6-4, 225lb Political Science Major has the physical tools to play a power-forward game at the next level and will be looked at to take on a larger role heading into his Senior campaign with the Raiders.

The Dundas, ON native and 2017-18 CCHL MVP continued his strong play at the college level this past season where he wore the “C” and finished third in scoring for the Skating Saints with 16 points (4G, 12A) in 33 games. In April it was announced that Jankowski will be transferring to Michigan Tech for his final season of collegiate play, where he will join fellow CCHL alumni in Brett Thorne and Ryland Mosley.

The Kanata, ON native and member of the 2017-18 CCHL All-Rookie Team put together a steady Sophomore season with the Golden Knights, finishing third among defenseman on his team with 13 points (4G, 9A) in 36 games of action. Studying Business, Power is known as a two-way defenseman that can play both sides of the ice and in all situations. Heading into his Junior season, Power should move up the depth chart with Clarkson losing their top scoring blueliner in Lukas Kalble to the professional ranks. 

 

ELLIOTT MCDERMOTT (CARLETON PLACE CANADIANS) – COLGATE UNIVERSITY

The Kingston, ON native and 2019-20 CCHL Academic Player of the Year and 1st Team All-Star with Carleton Place took another step forward in his Sophomore season with the Raiders, setting a career best with 13 points (2G, 11A) in 40 games of action which was third best among team defensemen. In April, it was announced that McDermott has officially transferred to the University of Massachusetts of Hockey East for the 2022-23 school year. UMass plays in a stronger conference so it will be interesting to see how the smooth-skating two-way defender transitions his game in his Junior season as he takes on a leadership role with a younger defense core.

 

JOHN BEATON (KEMPTVILLE 73’s) – RPI

The Stittsville, ON native and 2018-19 CCHL Sportsmanship Award winner while playing for the Kemptville 73’s, Beaton put together a strong first season of college hockey, totalling 13 points (4G, 9A) in 41 games. Already considered a playmaker, Beaton was also a key man in the face-off dot for the Engineers, winning 196 draws. Off the ice, he is majoring in Business and Management where he made the Deans List and was named an All-American Scholar.  

 

RYAN RICHARDSON (SMITHS FALLS BEARS) – CLARKSON UNIVERSITY

The Stittsville, ON native and 2019-20 CCHL 1st Team All-Star and leading goal-scorer transitioned well in his rookie season of collegiate play, finishing second among Freshmen on the Golden Knights with 13 points (3G, 10A) in 37 games. “Ryan is an extremely competitive, smart hockey player”, said Head Coach Casey Jones. He is extremely difficult to play against and has a knack for taking pucks hard to the net.” Off the ice, Richardson is studying Business. He will be a player to watch heading into his Sophomore campaign after the success he had as a Freshman.

 

YANIV PERETS (BROCKVILLE BRAVES) – QUINNIPIAC UNIVERSITY

The Dollard-des-Ormeaux, QC native had a Sophomore season to remember as he posted a 22-5-2 record with a 1.17 GAA, .939 SV%, and 12 shutouts on way to being named a finalist for both the Hobey Baker Award (NCAA MVP) and Mike Richter Award (NCAA Top Goaltender). He did end up picking up some hardware, earning ECAC Conference Player of the Year and Top Goaltender, while also being named to the NCAA East Second All-American Team. In April he announced he would be returning to Quinnipiac for his Junior season rather than turning pro. This past season will be a tough act to follow but knowing the pedigree in Perets, he is up for the challenge.

The Hudson Falls, NY native and former Carleton Place Canadians standout joined the Dutchmen in 2021-22 as a Junior after transferring from Northeastern University where he spent his first two collegiate seasons. He took the reins, starting 37 games and posted a 14-18-3 record with a 2.66 GAA, .919 SV% and 3 shutouts. He was named ECAC Player of the Week on two occasions. On March 11th, he set the new single season Saves record for the Dutchmen. Off the ice, Murphy is studying Managerial Economics.
