Northeast forward Therrien makes college commitment
April 24, 2019
The Northeast Generals of the NA3HL are excited to announce that Top Prospects forward and Cole Therrien has committed to play college hockey at Lawrence Tech, an NAIA program.
Therrien, 20, came to the Generals at the trade deadline after a standout career with the Cape Cod Islanders (now the Canton Cubs). In 37 games in the NA3HL this past season, the 6’2/175 lbs. native of Centerville, Massachusetts, put up great numbers totaling 25 goals and 23 assists for 48 points.
He was also selected to and played in the 2019 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament for the Coastal Division team, posting two points in three games.
Overall in his three-year NA3HL career, Therrien had 75 points in 59 games played.
“Cole is a great kid that has a ton of ability. It’s always hard when you make a trade and wonder how the player is going to fit in to the team both on the ice and in the locker room. Cole couldn’t have been any greater. He fit right in with our guys and we loved having him,” said Generals head coach Daryl Locke.
“What makes Cole’s decision to commit to Lawrence Tech so great is that he had a ton of NCAA Division III options, but chose the option that was best for him. Lawrence Tech offered great hockey, a great education and the ability for him to make an impact from Day 1,” said Generals GM Bryan Erikson.
