WEST KELOWNA B.C. – The West Kelowna Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is pleased to announce the commitment of forward Jack Cronin (‘01) for the 2020-21 season.
The Hamilton, Massachusetts native tallied 22 goals and 14 assists in 27 games played with Noble & Greenough (USHS Prep). Including his Junior season, Cronin has scored 48 goals in 56 games, making him one of the top goal scorers in New England Prep over the last two seasons. “We are very excited for Jack to join the Warriors family”, said Warriors Head Coach Simon Ferguson. “Jack brings a great work ethic and an exceptional shot.” Cronin is committed to Princeton University (NCAA).
The 5’11, 185 pound forward had plenty of options on where to play next year, but decided to commit to the Warriors. “I chose the Warriors after several conversations with Mr. Murphy and Coach Simon Ferguson,” stated Cronin. “I also did some research and heard nothing but great things about the direction of the team under the new ownership, the community of West Kelowna and the fan base. The league as a whole is more offensive and I feel that fits my game really well.”
Cronin has a handful of friends from the New England area that recommended playing in the BCHL. “More and more kids from New England Prep seem to be going to the BCHL. Tyler Young( WEN), Chase MacInnis (VIC) and Nick Caferelli (WEN) are a few friends of mine who played in the league last year.”
The Warriors would like to welcome Jack and his family to the City of West Kelowna and the Warriors organization.
The Warriors are accepting more positions for their Spring Camp. For more information visit the West Kelowna Warriors website.
