Parsons commits to Brockport

Mitchell Parsons played for the North Iowa Bulls’ during the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 season where he was one of the most recognizable faces on and off the ice. His leadership earned him the captain’s designation during the 2016-17 season.

He’s now a member of the Eastern Hockey League’s Connecticut Roughriders and, next year, he'll be a member of the Brockport Golden Eagles.

Parsons announced his commitment last week to the State University of New York at Brockport.

The Grandville, Michigan native was a key factor in the Bulls’ 2015-16 run to the Silver Cup national championship, and the team’s return to the national tournament a year ago, with 64 points in 87 regular-season and postseason games for North Iowa.

This year, his game has shifted into a new gear, with 58 points, including 30 goals, in 36 EHL games. 

“Mitch is a complete player playing at 100% capacity and all zones on a daily basis,” said Connecticut head coach Eric Lind. “He is extremely effective on special teams and is a team leader both on and off the ice. He elevates the team to work at higher level of play by leading by example.”

Here is his highlight video from his senior year of high school a year in which he was the Grand Rapids Press Winter Athlete of the Year:
