EHL Forward Set to Join Falcons this Fall

BURLINGTON, VT -- The Vermont Lumberjacks are pleased to announce that Adam Kusior has committed to Fitchburg State University for the fall of 2019. In his first and only season in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), the '98 native of Canada turned heads while scoring 14 goals and dishing out 21 assists in 47 total games.

"Adam was a huge pickup for us this year,” said EHL head coach and general manager Jim Mosso. “He was a great two-way player for us, as he played both offense and defense during the course of the season. He was relied on heavily for all of the big roles and came through with some huge goals when we needed them the most. Good luck to Adam in his college career.”

Kusior played alongside Mason Emoff and Andrew Bechard down the stretch, as the three forwards made up one of the most dynamic top lines in the league. As the chemistry between the scorers developed, the Lumberjacks season took off, and the trio helped lead Vermont further into the playoffs than they had ever been before.

"Coming to play for the Lumberjacks this past season was the best decision I made in my junior career," said Kusior. "The Rosales’ run a first-class junior hockey organization in Vermont. Both Coach Mosso & Coach Jack pushed me everyday to be a better player and prepared me for this upcoming college hockey season. I’d like to thank Mrs. Eleanor Moon for taking Ty Lisieski and I into her home for the season. We are both grateful for everything you’ve done for us this past year. Lastly, I want to thank my parents for supporting me all these years and helping me achieve my dreams.”

While the Lumberjacks fell ultimately just one game short of the EHL Frozen Finals, it was still a very special season for Kusior and his teammates. The six-foot forward will now join Fitchburg State this fall, as part of a freshmen class that includes five total alumni from the EHL.

EHL Defenseman Set to Join Mustangs this Fall

BURLINGTON, VT -- The Vermont Lumberjacks are pleased to announce that James Boisvert has committed to Morrisville State College for the fall of 2019. In his first and only season in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), the '98 native of Mansfield, TX tallied 21 total points for his team.

"James Boisvert was a huge part of our team’s success this year,” said EHL head coach and general manager Jim Mosso. “He was one of our best defensemen, that contributed to our offensive output. He was used on the power-play, the penalty kill and everything in between. He was a great guy in the locker room and pushed his teammates around him. He has all the tools to succeed right away at the college level.”

As Mosso mentioned, the Lumberjacks used Boisvert in many different situations, including sliding him up to forward for the team's first playoff game of the 2019 postseason. In that matchup with the RoughRiders, Boisvert notched a hat-trick, and was later named the TSR Hockey Top Performer of the first round series. Overall Boisvert believes that he made the perfect decision in choosing the Lumberjacks and the EHL, for his final year of junior hockey.

"The Lumberjacks helped me take my game to the next level and Coach Mosso along with the EHL put me in front of many schools to show my skills," said Boisvert. "Coach Mosso helped me become a much better defensive player, to pay attention to the details, and boosted my offensive side of the game. Playing college hockey was always a goal of mine and the Lumberjacks helped to make it a reality. I am thankful I was able to play my age-out year for Coach Mosso, and with one of the best run programs in the country.”

Boisvert is one of two EHL players set to join the Mustangs this fall, as Cade Street of the Philadelphia Little Flyers made the same decision a few months ago.

EHL Forward Set to Join Ravens this Fall

BURLINGTON, VT -- The Vermont Lumberjacks are pleased to announce that Conor Foley has committed to Franklin Pierce University for the fall of 2019. In his first and only season in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), the ’98 native from Nahant, MA racked up 15 goals and 19 assists for a total of 34 points in just 29 games with the Lumberjacks. 

“Conor Foley came to our team halfway through the season, and made a major impact on our team,” said EHL head coach and general manager Jim Mosso. “He averaged over a point per game and extended our team’s depth. He is a great kid and instantly became a leader. He has overcome so much as a hockey player already and has used his obstacles to drive him forward. I'm very blessed to have him join our team when he did. This accomplishment goes further than anyone can truly describe. I am extremely proud.”

As Mosso mentioned, Foley made an immediate impact to the Lumberjacks roster, after joining them halfway through the season, and Foley is very grateful to have received the opportunity. 

“Playing for the Lumberjacks and Coach Mosso gave me every opportunity I needed to help me get back into the game of hockey.” said Foley. “I truly believe without Coach Mosso and my Lumberjack teammates I would not be playing college hockey next year. He filled all the holes in my game and made me into a complete player.”

While the Lumberjacks saw their season come to an end sooner than they had hoped, Foley and his teammates still have plenty to be proud of with what they accomplished this year.
