“I chose Plymouth because I heard a lot of good things about the school” Laurin said. “There is a lot of international students there and a lot of Scandinavians, so after my first tour I kind of just knew that was where I wanted to play and get my education in Business Management.” Laurin has played in the States for the past two season and says, “hockey is very different here then back home, but I have learned so much the past two seasons. It’s been an honor to play for Coach Frew this season. It’s been one of the best years during my hockey career I would say” he said.
Laurin said that Junior Hockey has been an adventure and that he is ready to continue playing and furthering his education here in the States. “I developed on and off the ice this season, this team was amazing, and it was always fun to go to practice and just be around this tight group of guys. Everyone wanted what was best for everyone.”
We would like to wish the best of luck to Jacob and his family has he continues his hockey and academic career here in New Hampshire.
