Vipers’ Crowell commits to Alaska Anchorage

The Vernon Vipers are pleased to announce that Chris Crowell has accepted a scholarship to the University of Alaska Anchorage. Chris will begin attending class in the fall of 2009.

Chris has played the last four years for the Vernon Vipers and has been team captain for the last two. During his time in Vernon, Chris has developed from an enforcer into a gritty two-way hockey player. This season Chris has put up very respectable numbers with 11 goals and 23 assists for 34 points in 45 games.

Chris has been the heart and soul of the Vipers over the past few seasons. Not only does he lead the Vipers on the ice, he is a great role model in the community. Chris has worked very hard to achieve this goal of his and it is well deserved. The Vernon Vipers would like to congratulate Chris and wish him continued success.
