Ex-Chilliwack Chief Luke Esposito was probably pumped to be named an ECAC All-Academic team member.

Ex-Chiefs named to NCAA All-Academic teams

Former Chilliwack Chief stars Trevor Hills and Luke Esposito have been recognized for their book-smarts.

Two former Chilliwack Chiefs have earned All-Academic status in NCAA hockey. A pair of NCAA division one hockey conferences have announced their studious stars from the 2013-14 season, with 59 BCHL grads listed.

Luke Esposito plays for the Harvard Crimson and Trevor Hills for the St. Lawrence Saints. Both schools skate in the East Coast Athletic Conference.

The ECAC listed 38 BCHL alums as all-academics.

The Quinnipiac University Bobcats lead the way with eight; Connor Jones (Vernon Vipers), Brady Rouleau (Victoria Grizzlies), Michael Garteig (Penticton Vees), Kellen Jones (Vernon Vipers), Brooks Robinson (Prince George Spruce Kings), Brayden Sherbinin (Salmon Arm Silverbacks), Travis St. Denis (Penticton Vees) and Devon Toews (Surrey Eagles).

The Union College Dutchmen have six; Mat Bodie (Powell River Kings), Matt Hatch (Alberni Valley Bulldogs), Cole Ikkala (Vernon Vipers), Daniel Carr (Powell River Kings), Noah Henry (Powell River Kings) and Charlie Vasaturo (Salmon Arm Silverbacks).

Twenty one BCHLers were named on the Atlantic Hockey all-academic team, none of them former Chiefs. The Rochester Institute of Technology Tigers had seven;  Brad McGowan (Surrey Eagles), Josh Mitchell (Alberni Valley Bulldogs), Greg Noyes (Salmon Arm Silverbacks), Eliot Raibl (Quesnel Millionaires), Brad Reid (Salmon Arm Silverbacks), Dan Schuler (Powell River Kings) and Brandon Thompson (Langley Chiefs).
