The Razorback Hockey team is pleased to announce that CCHL alum Chris Boswell plans to attend the University of Arkansas next season. Chris is the first official Razorback Hockey commitment for the 2015 recruiting season. A 6’1″ 195 lb. defenseman, Chris last played for the Carleton Place Canadians for Coach Jason Clarke. Carleton Place regularly produces scholarship-ready student-athletes alongside NHL draft selections. Said Chris about choosing Arkansas, “Arkansas has a great winning tradition combined with outstanding academics which was a big draw for me.” He added, “I hope to be a key contributor to the expansion and growth of this successful organization as it moves up to Division I.”
Division I Head Coach Brian Gallini is equally pleased. “Attracting players of Chris’s quality speaks volumes about the growth of our program. We expect him to bring a physical presence to our blueline.”
Since 2009, the Arkansas hockey program has amassed an overall record of 161-48-4, including three trips to the Division III National Tournament and five SECHC conference playoff tournament championships. The team’s home games are played at The Jones Center for Families in Springdale.
