Maryland forward McCoy makes NCAA D1 commitment
The Maryland Black Bears of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Hunter McCoy has committed to play NCAA Division 1 hockey for Army-West Point in Atlantic Hockey.
McCoy, 20, has had a very good first season in the NAHL. The 6’0/190 lbs. native of Newburyport, MA, recorded 35 points (14 goals, 21 assists) in 53 games played during the 2020-21 regular season.
McCoy was named the East Division’s Star of the Week twice during the regular season and he has also chipped in two points in five playoff games to date,
“Hunter came to Maryland as a man on a mission. He competes hard in everything he does, and truly has a passion for the game. He is a great story for the younger players in our program. He believed in himself, he works hard to get better, and he loves to compete every time he steps onto the ice. He knew what he had to do, on and off the ice to get a commitment, and took charge of his destiny. We could not be happier or prouder of Hunter McCoy. Army is getting a really good person and hockey player on their campus,” said Black Bears head coach Clint Mylymok.
“Proud and honored to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey at Army West Point! I’m so grateful for my family, coaches, and teammates for all of the support through the highs and lows. It wouldn’t be possible without all of you! #Goarmy,” said McCoy on Twitter regarding his commitment.
