Reynolds commits to St. Anslem College
West Springfield, MA (2.2021) The Springfield PICS are proud to announce that the 2000 born forward Chase Reynolds has committed to St. Anslem College for the fall. A native of Middletown, CT the 5’10 20-year-old Reynolds has 28 goals and 55 assists in 143 season games. The St. Anselm Hawks play in the Northeast-10 Hockey Division II conference.
“I was impressed with Chase the first time I saw him play. He competes in all three zones and hunts any loose puck. He goes to the net hard and has a quick release. I like players that are captains and when he came to campus for a visit you could tell he is a character young man. Looking forward to seeing Chase in a Hawk jersey over the next four years.” Hawks Head Coach Larry Rocha was quoted in a statement
“Chase is the hardest working player on the ice every night. It was a pleasure to watch his development these past four seasons, two with our U18 squad, and two with our Premier club. He was a captain for the last three seasons and could one day be a captain of the Hawks. He is going to have a great career and I look forward to watching him play in college. We are looking forward to developing a pipeline to St. Anselm College.” Pics General Manager Rob Bonneau was quoted about Reynolds.
College Development Coach John Sarno was quoted at saying “Chase is a powerful skater who plays an exceptionally reliable game in all three zones. He is a guy you want on your team and in your locker room.”
Chase Reynolds was asked about his feelings, and he responded via e-mail with the following statement. “This is a dream come true for me. I’ve been watching NCAA hockey ever since I can remember, and this is huge milestone. I’d like to thank my parents for always believing in me, I owe a lot of my success to them. Most importantly, I would like to thank the Springfield Pics organization. Coach Bonneau and Coach Collins have not only showed me how to be a better hockey player, but a better person as well. I’m looking forward to our playoff push in my last season of juniors and the next four years of college hockey at St. Anselm’s.”
