The longest-serving member of the Nanaimo Clippers will move on to the next level of hockey in the fall.
The city’s B.C. Hockey League club announced today that Kyle Kramer has committed to attend Brown University for 2013-14. The Brown Bears play in the NCAA’s Div. 1.
“Kyle deserves this opportunity as much or more than any athlete I have ever worked with,” said Mike Vandekamp, Clippers coach, in a press release. “His dedication, commitment, and perseverance have paid off and we are very proud to see him make this commitment today. We would like to congratulate Kyle on joining the Brown Bears and look forward to continuing to work with him the rest of the way this season.”
Kramer, from Qualicum Beach, is in his fourth season with the Clips. An alternate captain, he leads the team in goals (16) and penalty minutes (61). He also led the Shipmen in both those categories last season.
