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.”
