Northeast Generals forward Perry makes NCAA commitment
May 17, 2017
The Northeast Generals, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that forward Kevin Perry has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at Fitchburg State.
Perry, 20, first came to the Northeast Generals in their inaugural season in the NA3EHL (now the NA3HL). Perry, a native of Hull, Massachusetts, was the first Captain in team history, registering 51 points in 44 games during the 2015-16 season.
He played on the NA3EHL Top Prospects team that season and scored the game-winning goal at the top prospects event on a penalty shot in overtime.
Perry (6’0/195) continued his career in the 2016-17 season by being the first player to sign a tender with the expansion Northeast Generals of the NAHL. He played in 38 NAHL regular season games and had four points.
"Kevin is one of the best kids I have ever coached. He gives 100% of his heart on and off of the ice. He has improved so much in the last few years and all of it is because of how tremendously hard he works. His teammates and coaches love him because he does everything that is asked and is just a great kid in and out of the locker room. We are excited to have Kevin commit to play NCAA hockey next year as he is a true success story on the ladder of development," said Northeast General Manager Bryan Erikson.
