Georgetown Raiders forward Jeremy DeFazio (photo credit - Izak Westgate/HHOF) has confirmed his commitment to join The College at Brockport Golden Eagles beginning with the 2012-13 SUNYAC season.

The 20-year old native of Oakville, Ontario made the jump to the OJHL as a 17-year old rookie with the Bramalea Blues in 2009-10. After notching 17 points as a rookie, the club would suspend operations and DeFazio would briefly leave the OJHL, before returning as a member of the powerhouse Burlington Cougars last season. He would notch 22 points in 42 games for the Cougars while helping them capture the West Division regular season title. This season, DeFazio moved to the Raiders and was once again part of a regular season championship, helping the club finish first overall in the entire OJHL, and hopes to continue that success in the playoffs.

DeFazio has good hockey pedigree. His father is Dean DeFazio who played in the NHL for the Pittsburgh Penguins. He runs DeFazio hockey camp: http://www.defaziohockey.com/

Jeremy's brother Brandon plays for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the AHL.
