KINGS PARK, N.Y. - The Long Island Royals are proud to announce the commitment of defenseman Conner Hutchison to the University of Vermont for the fall of 2019. The Catamounts compete in the ultra-competitive Hockey East Conference, which sent six of its twelve teams to the 2016 NCAA tournament.
Hutchison completed his second season with the Selects Academy at South Kent School 16-and-under team and posted back-to-back twenty-point seasons in league play. He is an exceptional playmaker, as evidenced by his 18 assists in 26 USPHL games this past season, along with 23 in 2014-15. He also chipped in a goal and two assists in the 2016 Tournament of Champions.
Prior to heading to South Kent “Hutch” played 3 seasons for the ‘00 LI Royals team that won multiple NY State and AY titles.
The Hicksville, NY, native is the second Hockey East commitment for the Royals this season.
