TEWKSBURY, MA -- The Boston Jr. Rangers are pleased to announce that Tyler Gardiner has committed to the University of Southern Maine for the Fall of 2018. Gardiner is in his second season with the Rangers' top team, and to date, has tallied 42 points in 84 career games in the EHL.
"We are very proud of Tyler’s commitment to USM," said Rangers EHL head coach and general manager Rich DeCaprio. "He’s worked very hard his whole hockey career to achieve this opportunity. The last two years with us he really grew. He’s going to have a great college career."
Gardiner has already surpassed his 2016-17 season for points so far this year, and has produced well alongside Danny Sorabella and Ryan Tierney. The native of Watertown, MA took some time to reflect on his decision and thank those that helped him along the way.
"I am very happy to be attending the University of Southern Maine in the Fall," said Gardiner. "I would like to thank Coach DeCaprio, Coach Blair, and all of my teammates for helping me become the person and player that I am. I've had a lot of fun these past two years and I am looking forward to the next four with Coach Harding and his team. Go Huskies!"
Gardiner and the Rangers return to action Wednesday when they take on the Warriors at 11:50am.
