Aston, PA – The Philadelphia Little Flyers, members of the Eastern Hockey League are proud to announce 1999 birth year forward Kyle Scott has committed to attend Lebanon Valley College in the Fall of 2019 to continue his education and hockey career. Scott, a 6’1” 165lb forward from Newark, Delaware is in his first full season with the Little Flyers EHL team after splitting last season between the Premier and EHL roster. Signing Scott to the Premier team last season was very important to the overall success of the team and program in general as once the talented forward committed to the Little Flyers, other high level Premier players joined. After tearing up the Premier league last season by scoring 32 goals and adding 20 assists in 27 games, Scott got the full time call up to the EHL team where he scored one goal and added two assists in 24 games. “Kyle Scott came to us from AA hockey and joined our Premier team in our first season last year and made us a competitive program, he helped us tremendously by joining. He had such a good season, he got the full time call-up after Christmas break last season to the EHL team. He didn’t get the most ice time when he made the jump but he gained a world of experience being on that team with those players which really translated to this year. He’s been tearing it up this season, if he didn’t suffer an injury earlier in the season he’d be right up there with the leading scorers in the league. Even despite the injury, Lebanon Valley has always been interested in Kyle, he’s got speed, good hands, and he attacks the net well and everything they are looking for. He’s a 99 so he has another year of junior eligibility but they wanted him bad and he’s made the decision to go to college in the fall. It’s great for Kyle to be a local kid who just worked his way up from AA hockey through the junior system and is now going to be an NCAA student Athlete so we couldn’t be any prouder of him” said Little Flyers EHL Head Coach and General Manager Mark Catron. The Lebanon Valley Dutchmen, coached by Don Parsons, are members of the United Collegiate Hockey Conference.
“I am proud to announce my college commitment to Lebanon Valley College for the fall of 2019. First, I would like to thank my family for all of their support throughout my hockey career. Next, I would like to thank Coach Mark Catron, Coach Mike Narrigan, Coach George Lewis, and the Giacobbo family. Lastly, I would like to thank Coach Parsons for giving me the opportunity to pursue my academic and athletic career. I am very excited to start my college experience at Lebanon Valley College next year” said Scott after making his commitment over the weekend.
As Little Flyers Head Coach Mark Catron alluded to, the experience Scott gained last season has really translated on the ice this year. Currently, in 27 games, Scott has scored 16 goals while dishing out 15 assists, a top contributor to the Little Flyers EHL record of 38-3-1. With this past weekend’s sweep of North Carolina the Little Flyers earned their 4th EHL Regular Season Championship and home ice advantage throughout the EHL playoffs as Scott and his teammates look to capture the playoff Championship in March. On behalf of the entire Little Flyers Organization we congratulate Kyle and his family on his college commitment and thank him for everything he has done in the Little Flyers uniform.
