ALUMNI ALERT: Haugh Commits to SUNY Brockport
The ’03 native of Macedon, NY is in his second season with the Rangers, and over the course of 79 career games in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), Haugh has tallied 19 total points to his credit on nine goals and 10 assists. It’s worth pointing out that 10 of those points have come in the first 27 games of the current 2023-24 season, indicating that Haugh has already surpassed his season total from the entire 2022-23 campaign.
“Andrew has been a staple on our blue line for the last 2 seasons,” said Rangers head coach and general manager Rich DeCaprio. “He moves real well, sees the ice extremely well, and has a sneaky shot from the blue line. We are excited to see him play at Brockport!”
It’s also worth mentioning that Haugh has already played a game on the campus of SUNY Brockport, one of which took place back in October when he hit the ice for the Main EHL All-Star Team. That weekend in Haugh’s home state included a matchup with SUNY Fredonia on Friday, October 20th, which was then followed up with by a game against the Golden Eagles on Saturday the 21st. It’s safe to say that Haugh presence that weekend caught the attention of the Brockport coaching staff, and thus led to this NCAA Commitment.
“My time at BJR has been great,” said Haugh. “Coach DeCaprio has helped me develop and prepare for a college style of hockey. The winning atmosphere here at BJR has helped me become a better player and reach my goal of playing college hockey.
Brockport has a great culture and a great foundation to step into. Coach [Brian] Dickinson has been great throughout this process. I am looking forward to the next four years as a Golden Eagle!”
Haugh and the Rangers will return to action following the turn of the calendar year over to 2024, and in control of first place in the East Division standings. Playing in arguably the toughest of the four division, Haugh and the Rangers know the challenges that lie ahead of them, as they look to make a run back to Providence and the Frozen Finals, and if they are fortunate enough to make it there, claim the league’s first back-to-back titles since 2019.
