Aston, PA – The Philadelphia Little Flyers, members of the Eastern Hockey League are proud to announce 1997 birth year defenseman, Trevor Lewandoski, has committed to attend Framingham State University in the fall of 2018 to continue his education and hockey career. Lewandoski, a 5’8” 165lb native of Newbury, Ohio is in his third season with the Little Flyers Eastern Hockey League team. The Framingham State University Rams, coached by Guy Angers are current members of the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference. “We’re very excited for Trevor on his commitment to Framingham State. Trevor is an excellent young man and I can’t thank him enough for the three years he has spent as a Little Flyer. He’s a truly gifted player with a phenomenal work ethic and an even better attitude. He has earned this commitment” said Little Flyers Head Coach & General Manager George Lewis. After playing in 22 games in his first season, Lewandoski has played in 95 of a possible 98 regular season games over the past two years while being named Co-Captain for the 2017-18 campaign.
“I would like to thank my family first of all for supporting me throughout this entire journey. I am extremely grateful for the sacrifices they have made so that I may continue my hockey career and education at Framingham State University. I would also like to thank Coach Russo, Coach Lewis and The Giacobbo family for the opportunity to play for the Little Flyers organization the past three seasons. A special thank you to Russ Sinkewich and the Ohio Hockey Project for the summer skill sessions that allow me to put in the work during the off season. Finally, I would like to thank Coach Angers and Coach Bailey for reaching out and giving me the chance to play NCAA hockey. I am extremely excited to be joining them in the fall.” said Lewandoski.
In 50 games this season, Lewandoski has scored 4 goals and added 16 assists for 20 points. Lewandoski’s strong defense on the penalty kill led to offense this season as the defenseman finished tied for 4th in the EHL with 3 shorthanded assists. The increase in Lewandoski’s offensive numbers are a result of him being on the ice in all situations for this year’s Little Flyers, who lean heavily on their defensive leader in even strength and shorthanded situations. “Losing a guy like Trevor is devastating to a team, but I know that he will continue to make wherever he ends up great and we couldn’t be happier to have had him for the time we did. Coach Angers and his team are very lucky to get a guy like Lewy.” Concluded Coach Lewis when speaking of his Co-Captain.
Lewandoski and his team begin their journey to the EHL Frozen Finals on Friday when they will host the Connecticut Oilers in first round playoff action. The third year player is seeking his third straight trip to the EHL Finals, hoping to bring home the hardware this time around.
