Neaton commits to UMass Lowell

Prince George Spruce Kings goaltender Logan Neaton has had a stellar start to his BCHL career. He is at, or near, the top of the league in every goaltending category and has been a huge reason why the Spruce Kings currently sit in first place in the overall standings. His strong play hasn’t gone unnoticed as he has announced his commitment to the UMass Lowell River Hawks for the 2020-21 season.

In his first year in Prince George, the 19-year-old leads the league in goals-against average at 1.97 and has the second-highest save percentage at .915. He owns a record of 19-4-1 with one shutout and has played the second-most minutes among all BCHL netminders.

Neaton, a native of Brighton, Mich., had his best stretch of the season from Oct. 26 to Nov. 21 where he won eight straight starts in didn’t give up more than two goals in any single game.

The River Hawks are an NCAA Division I program playing out of the Hockey East conference along with Boston College, Boston University, UConn, Maine, UMass, Merrimack, New Hampshire, Northeastern, Providence and Vermont. They currently sit in sixth place with a record of 4-4-1 in conference and 8-7-1 overall.

UMass Lowell’s current roster features former Trail Smoke Eater and 2018 Detroit Red Wings draft pick Seth Barton, West Kelowna Warriors alum Connor Sodergren and former Alberni Valley Bulldog Chris Schutz.

Coquitlam Express defenceman Jordan Schulting is also committed to the River Hawks for the 2019-20 season.
