The Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League’s most valuable player has confirmed his commitment to play for the Laurentian Voyageurs of Ontario University Athletics come next season.

Standout forward Caleb Serre of the Blind River Beavers will attend Laurentian after playing four full seasons in the NOJHL.

Serre had a sensational season for his hometown Blind River team in 2019-2020 as the NOJHL’s leading scorer with 47 goals, 66 assists, 113 points.

“I’m looking forward to getting things going,” Serre relayed about heading 90 miles from his Blind River home to attend school and play hockey at Sudbury-based Laurentian.

Beavers coach-general manager Kyle Brick said Laurentian is getting a quality player and person in Serre.

“When Caleb joined us four years ago, we said we needed to change the culture and he did that for us,” stated Brick.

“It wasn’t just on the ice but off as well … Caleb was able to bring the community together and reinstate their love for the Beavers,” added Brick. “He gave us everything the last four years and we wish him all the best in the future.”

What you think about “Serre to skate for Laurentian”

  1. Always wondered why this young fella was special. At first, I did not believe in his true ability until I was with the Lumberjacks in Blind River, and after about 10 minutes into the first period, I quickly came to realize that Caleb Serre had skill, talent, and was able to put the puck into the net. His talent will serve him well going forward, and as with all players taking that next step in both the academic and hockey process, and even if I don’t know Caleb as a person, I for one wish him all the best going forward.

  2. Im looking forward to seeing these NOJHLers when then come to Kingston to play Queens and RMC. We had two playing this past year for RMC Seamus Maguire Cochrane Crunch and Dean Kiriacou Timmins Rock. It’s awesome hockey with none stop action.

  3. I wish him the very best at Laurentian University. This fellow was one of the most dynamic and talented players consistently the last three years in the NOJHL. A great example of someone smaller but competing and succeeding at the next level. I think many NOJHL fans will want to see how Caleb competes at the university level. I wish him the very best. His leadership will be a tough one to replace for the beavers.
