Slick signs on with Holy Cross

Chilliwack Chiefs defenceman Matt Slick has committed to play for the College of the Holy Cross Crusaders.

In his first BCHL season, Slick, who is from Hanover, N.H., had four goals and eight assists while playing all 58 of his team’s regular season games and all seven of his team’s playoff games. Although his BCHL season is over, Slick and the Chiefs will get another chance to play this year as they are hosting the RBC Cup in May.

Holy Cross plays in the NCAA’s Atlantic Hockey Conference along with Air Force, American International, Army West Point, Bentley, Canisius, Mercyhurst, Niagra, Robert Morris, Rochester Institute of Technology and Sacred Heart.

Earlier this month, the Crusaders lost to Robert Morris in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Hockey tournament.

Holy Cross’ 2017-18 roster consisted of several BCHL grads, including Frank Boie, Johnny Coughlin, Andrew Dumaresque, Charlie Barrow, Jay Mackie, Jack Surowiec, Logan Milliken and team captain Brett Mulcahy.

Slick’s teammate in Chilliwack Anthony Vincent is the only other current BCHLer to commit to play for the Crusaders as he will join them next season.
