Former Holy Cross star Cox headed to Norway

By Jesse Connolly

After a superb senior season at Holy Cross, 2012 graduate Andrew Cox will begin his pro hockey career in Norway this fall.

The Lombardy, Ontario, native inked a deal with Stjernen Hockey of Get-ligaen, the premiere Norwegian hockey league. Stjernen is located in Fredrikstad, Norway.

In 2011-12, Cox ranked second among all Crusaders in goals (15) and points (33). The 23-year-old forward played in all 39 games for Holy Cross, which went 20-15-4 on the year and lost in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Hockey playoffs to Mercyhurst.

Cox tied for the team and conference lead with five-game winning goals this past season. His 33 points ranked sixth among all players in Atlantic Hockey.

A four-time member of the Atlantic Hockey All-Academic team, Cox will head to Europe following a collegiate career that saw him finish with 30 goals and 38 assists for a total of 68 points in 133 tilts for the Crusaders.
