The NH Avalanche in the EHL is proud to announce their 14th NCAA college hockey commitment of the 2018-19 season.  High scoring forward Wiggle Kerbrat has decided to continue his academic and athletic career at Wesleyan University.  Wesleyan University plays in the NESCAC Div III hockey conference and are currently ranked 10th in the Nation in Div III college hockey. The Cardinals play at their on campus facility the Spurrier-Snyder Arena and are coached by Head Coach Chris Potter who is in his 16th season as bench boss.  Kerbrat is leading the Avs with 63pts so far this season and was part of the EHL All Star games that played against Div III Umass Boston and Div III Plymouth State.  It was there that Kerbrat caught the eyes of many college hockey coaches.  "Wiggle has been great this season not only for us but for the EHL.  He is an outstanding young man and a very good student and his goal was to play in the NESCAC just figuring out where was the key. After visiting Wesleyan it became a top choice for Wiggle as he wanted to go to a school not only with a strong hockey program but also high end academics, he achieved both of his goals choosing Wesleyan.  Wiggle is going to be a great addition to the Wesleyan community.  I could not be happier for him and his family and wish them nothing but the best," said Chris Cerrella.  Kerbrat is excited about defending the EHL title he helped the Avs win last season and he is thankful for the opportunity both on the ice and in the classroom next fall at Wesleyan.  "I would like to thank my teammates, coaches, mentors and Coach Cerrella and the New Hampshire Avalanche organization for helping me achieve my goal of playing college hockey.   I would also like to thank my parents for all of their support through this process it has been a long road. I am excited to attend Wesleyan University with its rigorous academic standards and to be a part of its competitive hockey program," said Kerbrat.  With the regular season coming to an end Kerbrat will be leaned on to provide the Avs the offense he has produced all year in their goal of defending their EHL title.
