Three New Englanders will return to the region as champions after helping the Chilliwack Chiefs win the 2018 RBC Cup as the top Junior A team in Canada. Jake Gresh (Avon, Conn), Matt Slick (Andover, N.H.), and Anthony Vincent (Wilton, Conn.) were members of the Chiefs, a BCHL team and host of the event.
Slick and Vincent are both committed to playing college hockey at Holy Cross. Slick, a '99 defenseman with a mean streak, played four seasons at Proctor Academy while Vincent was a four-year member of the hockey team at Salisbury School.
Gresh, an Alaska-Fairbanks recruit who is a smooth-skating defender, played prep hockey at Avon Old Farms.
