Red Deer native and Spruce Grove Saints forward Dylan Hollman has committed to play for the University of Massachusetts-Lowell Riverhawks, a member of the NCAA Div. 1 Hockey East Conference, for the 2014-15 season.

Hollman, a three-year veteran of the AJHL Saints, has scored 24 goals and garnered 35 points in 36 games this season. Since joining Spruce Grove from the midget AAA Red Deer Optimist Chiefs, he has produced 47 goals and 30 assists in 151 regular-season games.

Hollman played with Team West in9 the World Junior A Challenge at Yarmouth, N.S., in November and led the squad in scoring with four goals and seven points in four games, helping Team West secure a bronze medal.

“Dylan takes pride in his 200 foot game. He is a guy who is effective in all three zones for us,” Saints head coach Jason McKee in a press release. “The one thing about Dylan is that he is able to score in a variety of different ways. I think that will be very effective for him as he moves forward in his hockey career.”

“I would like to thank my coaches, teammates, and most of all my parents for helping me get to this point,” said Hollman. “Without them, I would not be where I am today and their support is greatly appreciated.”
