Ottawa, ON – The Central Canada Hockey League and Ottawa Jr Senators are pleased to announce that defenseman Tucker McIntosh has verbally committed to NCAA St. Lawrence University for the 2021-22 school season.
The 2001 born Toronto, ON native is in his first season with the Jr Senators, in which he has totaled 7 assists through his first 13 games of action, placing him second among team defensemen.
“Tucker is a player that we have closely followed the last two years.” said Head Coach of the Jr. Senators Martin Dagenais. “When he committed to us earlier this year, we knew we had a special player. He’s a good kid with an excellent work ethic and has a tremendous skill set which will help him succeed at the Div. 1 level. He still has lots to learn, but he’ll get there, and once he does, he’ll be one of the league’s top defenceman. St. Lawrence is getting a good one.”
With captain Owen Cole committed to UMass-Lowell, Tucker McIntosh becomes the second player from the Jr. Senators to commit to an NCAA Division 1 program and he couldn’t be more excited about the commitment.
“Couldn’t be happier with my decision.” said McIntosh “I had already gone to St. Lawrence about a year ago with my school to play in a showcase and I immediately loved It, I went down earlier this week for a visit and knew I wanted to go there. The coaches are awesome and I feel I can succeed both academically and athletically and I couldn’t be more excited.”
McIntosh will join two former Jr. Senators, goaltender Francis Boisvert and defenceman Cameron White, as a member of the Saints when he begins play at the school in 2021-22.
Prior to his time in the CCHL, McIntosh spent the 2018-19 season with Upper Canada College of the CISAA.
