Ex-Chilliwack and current Harvard Crimson skater Chief Luke Esposito is a three time member of the East Coast Athletic Conference all-academic list.

Chilliwack Chiefs grad acing exams at Harvard

Luke Esposito has excelled on and off the ice at Harvard, earning all-academic honours from the ECAC.

Ex-Chilliwack Chief Luke Esposito is one of NCAA hockey’s smartest players.

The East Coast Athletic Association (ECAC) released its All-Academics from the 2015-16 season, and Espo is among 47 BCHLers on the list.

The Connecticut native makes the grade for the third time since graduating from the Chiefs and joining the Ivy League Harvard Crimson.

Another former Chief, Scott Davidson, who skates for Quinnipiac University, is on the list for the first time.

All 16 eligible BCHL franchises had at least one alumnus named. There were six BCHL grads that earned all-academic status in each of their four years of NCAA competition; Reece Willcox (Merritt) of Cornell, Connor Dempsey (West Kelowna) and James Kruger (Langley) of Dartmouth, Travis St. Denis (Trail/Penticton) and Michael Garteig (Powell River/Penticton) of Quinnipiac and Charles Orzetti (Surrey) of Yale.
