Langley trio named to Hockey East all-academic team

Matt Cronin named distinguished scholar for making all-academic team for four years

Matt Cronin wrapped up his university career in style.

The fourth-year defenceman for Merrimack College was named to the Hockey East conference all-academic team.

Players need to achieve a grade-point average of 3.0 or better in the previous two semesters to earn the recognition.

And Cronin was named a distinguished scholar as he made the all-academic team in all four years.

The 24-year-old from Langley studied civil engineering.

Cronin, who played in the B.C. Hockey League with the West Kelowna Warriors, Surrey Eagles and Langley Chiefs — was one of 21 BCHL alum who were named to the all-academic team.

Providence College defenceman Josh Monk — who played in the BCHL with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks and West Kelowna — was named to the team for the first time. He just completed his junior season.

And former Langley Rivermen defenceman Chris Forney — who plays for UMass-Lowell — was also a first time all-academic player. He just finished his sophomore season.
