19-year-old Defenceman Cedric Matte has committed to attend Norwich University, which is in Northfield, Vermont and plays in the D-III Conference of the NCAA.
From Waterville, Quebec, Cedric was acquired at the January 10th trade deadline from the Cornwall Colts in the CCHL. He compiled 6 points in 23 games, including all six playoff games with the Wolverines.
?Cedric came in at an important time for us and really allowed us to spread out the minutes on the back end,? stated Wolverines Head Coach Shawn Martin. ?He will have a very good career at Norwich, and we wish him the best of luck.?
Cedric is a great student and is looking forward to his studies in Engineering.
On behalf of the Wolverines organization, we want to congratulate Cedric and his family on this achievement and thank him for his tenure in Whitecourt.
Cedric is the 5th post-secondary commitment the Wolverines have had this season along with:
- Ethan Leyer (St. Cloud)
- Cassidey Bowes (University of Connecticut)
- Adam Sandstrom (NAIT)
- Brayden Labant (NAIT)
- Cedric Matte (Norwich University)
