Lakers get committment from St Mike's forward

TORONTO, ON (SMCS) - The St. Michael's Buzzers are pleased to announce their first NCAA commitment for the 2005-2006 season - Buzzers forward #19 John Scrymgeour has committed to Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan for the 2006-2007 season. Scrymgeour has joined in a ever growing pool of Buzzers - currently four other Buzzers are committed to Division I NCAA hockey programs with more expected within days.

Scrymgeour joined the St. Michael's Buzzers in this past off-season after playing for the OPJAHL Pickering Panthers for the previous two years. In his last year as a Panther he scored a 7-10-17 line in 32 games but has dwarfed that with his performance thus far in 2005-2006 with a 16-15-31 line in 25 games. His stellar performance on the ice wasn't the only aspect of his game getting him attention with the NCAA scouts - his leadership skills, intense work ethic and low-key demeanor have been key assets in an otherwise very young squad.

That very same approach to the game earned the respect of his peers and coaching staff, with Scrymgeour being assigned as an Alternate Captain on away games. Scrymgeour, in his humble fashion, attributes his dramatic rise and his new opportunity with LSSU to "the staff and exposure I was granted by the Buzzers. I can't express my gratitude enough for helping make this happen. This doesn't happen anywhere else other than with St. Mike's."

The St. Michael's Buzzers Junior A Hockey team has amassed over 20 players who have moved on or have current commitments to the NCAA, OHL and NHL in the last three years. The St. Michael's Buzzers name has become synonymous with integrity, success and hockey excellence in Canadian Junior A Hockey since its inception in 1933.
