The Jersey Hitmen Elite are pleased to announce that Chris Brunner-Grande has committed to Chatham University for the fall of 2017. Chris started with the Hitmen with the USP3 team and returned after playing a year for Choate Rosemary Hall. In 35 games this season, Chris tallied 11 goals and 13 assists.
Head coach Dan Henningson comments, “Chris is a mature individual and will bring leadership on and off the ice along with his cerebral hockey IQ and offensive skill sets. Chris has the hockey sense to play in all situations and will be a viable asset to the Chatham program. I wish Chris all the best and thank him for his hard work and dedication to the Hitmen organization.”
Chatham University inaugural season will begin 2017/18. Chatham will be the first D-III school in Pittsburgh, PA and the fourth program in the state when they take the ice in 2017. Chatham will be led by head coach Michael Callan.
