Best bags scholarship to Vermont for 2014
Friday, January 18, 2013 - Submitted by Surrey Eagles
The Surrey Eagles are pleased to announce that forward Drew Best has committed to attend the University of Vermont, beginning in the 2014-15 season.
 
Best, who hails from Plymouth, Michigan, has had a strong rookie season in the BCHL. The 18-year-old has tallied 31 points in 37 games in Surrey this year. His first BCHL goal was an overtime winner over the Chilliwack Chiefs back on September 14th. Best also netted a hat-trick in a win against Coquitlam on Nov. 12.
 
"Drew is a player that came to us in the summer, and I had really high hopes for him," said Eagles Head Coach and GM Matt Erhart. "He's a really good offensive player, but I think he's really learned both sides of the game in the first half of the season. He's been very responsible defensively, and at the same time, he has put up 30 points already which is impressive for the first half of his rookie season. It's nice to see him get rewarded for all the hard work that he's put in this year."
 
The University of Vermont is located in the city of Burlington. The Catamounts play in the NCAA's Division I Hockey East conference.
 
"Ever since I started playing hockey, it's been a dream of mine to play college hockey," said Best. "I'm really happy to go to Vermont. It's a great school with a great history behind the hockey team. They also have a really great business school which is what I want to go into when I get there."
 
Best becomes the ninth member of the Eagles to commit to an NCAA school, joining Devon Toews (Quinnipiac, 2013), Michael Stenerson (Alaska Anchorage, 2013), Brady Shaw (Bentley, 2013), Michael Santaguida (Vermont, 2013), Craig Wyszomirski (Merrimack, 2013), Adam Tambellini (North Dakota, 2013), Dan O'Keefe (Yale, 2014) and Brett Mulcahy (Holy Cross, 2014).
