Sault Ste. Marie native Bronson Kovacs has been named one of three senior captains for the Hobart College Statesmen of the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference for the upcoming season.
Kovacs, a hard-hitting, puck-moving defenceman who played with the Soo Thunderbirds of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League before going to Hobart, had 6 goals, 8 assists, 14 points in 24 games with the Statesmen in 2013-2014.
Known for his character and team-first attitude as much as his hockey-playing ability, the 24-year old Kovacs is the son of Toots and Diana Kovacs of the Soo.
No slouch in the classroom either, Kovacs was named to the ECAC’s All-Academic Team for the 2013-2014 term.
Hobart begins the 2014-2015 ECAC hockey season on Friday, October 31.
