Prescott native, Jr. Coyotes alum Shuter decides on NCAA D-III Arcadia for college destination
The EHL’s Walpole Express have announced the commitment of Jared Shuter to NCAA Division III Arcadia University.
Located in Glenside, Pa., the Knights play in the United Collegiate Hockey Conference.
The 2001-born forward from Prescott was an alternate captain in his second season with the Express.
“There were two main factors when choosing a school,” said Shuter. “Arcadia was a great fit academically, offering a number of prestigious science programs for me to pursue. Second, the hockey program and staff having a will to win every night. After visiting the school and meeting with Coach (Vincent) Pietrangelo, I found a true sense of belonging.”
“Jared has played a large part in the team’s success over the past two season,” said now-former Walpole coach Josh Holmstrom. “Last year, he centered our third line and could shut down top opponents while also leading the penalty kill. Still a top shutdown center and leader on the PK, this year he has developed offensively as well. Jared does a great job using his body to protect the puck and draw in defenders. He opens up a lot of space for his teammates. Jared leads by example, and I am very excited to see him progress at the next level.”
On playing two seasons for the Express, Shuter said “the experience with the Express has helped me become a better person and an improved hockey player.”
“Both Coach (Cody) Campbell in my first season and Coach Holmstrom this year have created an environment that gave me opportunities to grow as a person,” said Shuter. “This year having a leadership role has given me tools for my future as well. Most importantly, the Express organization provided me with teammates that I will value as brothers for life.”
Back home, Shuter played for the Jr. Coyotes.
