The Central Canada Hockey League and Cumberland Grads are pleased to announce that ’97 born forward Grant Hebert has verbally committed to attend NCAA Robert Morris University for 2018-19.
Now in his second full-season of CCHL action, the 6-3, 190 lb St. Andrews West, Ontario native sits 8th overall in league scoring with 10 goals and 37 points through 31 games. Last season Hebert totaled 18 goals and 42 points in 57 combined regular season and playoff games.
“We are very happy that Grant has been rewarded for all his hard work with this commitment to RMU”, said Grads Head Coach Sylvain Favreau. “Grant has been a pillar on our team for the last two seasons and will become a "go to guy" at the Division 1 level with Robert Morris University. Grant has been a perfect example that hard work pays off”.
Before joining the Tier 1 ranks with the Grads, Hebert suited up for the Casselman Vikings of the EOJHL (now CCHL2) where he spent the 2014-15 season. He scored 26 goals and totaled 64 points, helping the Vikings win the league title while also being named to the All-Rookie Team.
WHAT THE SCOUTS ARE SAYING
Benjamin Gallant – Regional Scout – Central Canada (ISS Hockey)
Good size two-way forward. Plays high in the defensive zone and will cover for any defenseman that pinches or leads the rush. First back on the backcheck consistently. Good vision on the breakout. Good puck skills and shot, displayed soft hands. Works hard in all three zones, hard to contain physically along the wall. Potential role player for an NCAA team.
