TEWKSBURY, MA -- The Boston Jr. Rangers are pleased to announce that Johnny Andrews has committed to Southern New Hampshire University for the Fall of 2017. Andrews is in his first season with the Rangers' Premier Team, after helping lead the Elite team to a championship last season.
"This is Johnny's second season with us," said Rangers Premier head coach Rich DeCaprio. "Last year he played on our Elite team and dominated. He has had a tremendous second season with our Premier team. He believed in the process and did a great job in the summer to lose 23 pounds. He now knows with his commitment finalized, the real hard work starts, both on and off the ice."
When DeCaprio uses the word dominated, he hits the nail on the head. In 44 total games, Andrews scored 37 goals and dished out 63 assists, adding up to an even 100 points last season. One would think that making the jump to Premier this year would bring his numbers down a bit, but the '96 forward has picked up right where he left off, with 57 points in the first 45 games. Andrews currently ranks 4th in the EHL in scoring.
"I want to thank the Jr. Rangers organization for providing me with the necessary tools and assets in order to achieve my goal of playing college hockey," said Andrews.
While he may not reach the 100-point club again this season, Andrews and his line-mate Mike McPherson (also had 100 points last year), have made a very smooth transition into the Premier Division. With three regular season season games left, Andrews will look to keep leading his team down the final stretch and into the postseason.
