Alex Borowiec, a forward for the EHL’s New Jersey 87s, has committed to Lebanon Valley for the second half of the 2018-19 season.
Borowiec played in 17 games for New Jersey, scoring four goals and adding 18 assists.
“It’s bittersweet,” said 87s coach-GM Adam Houli in a news release. “It is our job to get him to the next level. We got him here and he really embraced trying to develop his game as best as he could. His play has been tremendous in the last three weeks, and now he will take it into the college game in January.”
“I came here in October and Coach Houli gave me an opportunity to play here,” added Borowiec. “I had a couple of different colleges to choose from. Lebanon Valley is a great fit for me and I’m excited to jump right into it and help them compete for a championship this year. Adam and Matt have done a great job here in Middletown. I’ve been given the opportunity to come here and be a top guy, and I was able to work very hard with all of my linemates. It was great working with those guys, and they were great to me, and I think I’ve become a much better hockey player since coming here.”
