The Northern Vermont Wildcats are thrilled to announce that longtime Wildcat, Conor Leach, has committed to play NCAA Division 3 Men's Ice Hockey for Western New England University.

Leach started with the Wildcats as a first year Squirt and played 9 seasons wearing the blue and gold. He scored many, many key goals en route to tournament championship after tournament championship for those 9 years. 

"We are excited for Conor to be playing NCAA College Hockey. He is a natural goal scorer that always played hard wearing the blue and gold. We look forward to watching him at WNE!" General Manager Anthony Langevin was quoted saying.

Congratulations to Conor and his family. Go Golden Bears!
