Trenton Golden Hawks forward Chase Nieuwendyk has confirmed his commitment to join The College at Brockport Golden Eagles beginning with the 2012-13 SUNYAC season.

The 21-year old native of Georgetown, Ontario recently completed his fourth full OJHL season after playing the the previous three years with the Brampton Capitals. Nieuwendyk would steadily improve his statistical totals each season of his career, starting with 12 goals and 39 points as a 17-year old rookie in Brampton, and finishing with 27 goals and 57 points in 49 regular season games with Trenton to finish as the club's second leading scorer this past season.

In 147 career OJHL games Chase has 149 points....a very good pick-up for the Golden Eagles!

His bio on the OJHL roster says this (note the SAT!)...

Chase comes to Golden Hawks from Brampton along with teammate Josh Ocampo in a trade with the Capitals. Safe to say that Chase has good hockey genes as he is the nephew of NHL Hall Of Famer, Joe Nieuwendyk. Heady, slippery, good 2-way player, playmaker, deceptive are all words to describe Mr. Nieuwendyk’s game. With an 1630 SAT and good high school marks he hopes to obtain an NCAA scholarship.
