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.”
