HOOKSETT, NH -- The New Hampshire Avalanche are pleased to announce that Matt Lane has committed to Stevenson University for the fall of 2021.
"I am very excited for Matt, as he has come along way with us this season," said EHL head coach and general manager Chris Cerrella. "He has really matured his game both on and off the ice. Stevenson was his top choice, and he was able to reach his goal; it could not have worked out better for him starting in the 2021 season. As of right now, he will be playing one more season with the Avs, but that could change and he may end up there in 2020. Either way, Lane has earned this every step of the way, and I couldn’t be happier for him and his family!"
As Cerrella mentioned, Lane is officially committed to Stevenson, but it's still a little up in the air as to whether or not he will head off to school this fall or next. Regardless, the talented netminder has turned heads as one of the top goaltenders in the EHL this season. His calm demeanor between the pipes has given the team in front of him extra confidence throughout the year. Lane is beyond grateful for everything that the Avalanche program has done for him so far.
"Thank you to the New Hampshire Avalanche and Coach Cerrella for this opportunity," said Lane. "A special thank you to my family and teammates who have supported me over the years. I am extremely excited to be a Mustang for the next 4 years!"
Lane will be back in goal again tomorrow, as the Avalanche host the New England Wolves at 11:40am. New Hampshire is riding a three-game winning streak heading into tomorrow's matchup, and Lane and his teammates are still focused on making a push for a top seed in the upcoming New England Conference Playoffs.
