Graduating Kirkland Lake GoldMiners center Matt King, announces his commitment to Neumann University, in Aston, Pennsylvania. The 20 year old, from Lindsay, Ontario, saw his NOJHL season cut short, just 5 games due to the Coronavirus, but left an impression as a hard working, driven young man determined to meet his goals.
The 3 year Junior hockey vet of 93 games, joins the Knights, led by Head Coach Kyle Mountain, who play in the NCAA D-III United Collegiate Hockey Conference.
King intends to take the Marketing program at Neumann University, and is very appreciative of all the folks who’ve helped him along the way, from coaches and staff, teammates, billets, fans and of course, family.
GoldMiners Coach Kyle Smart says “even in the abbreviated season, we could see Matt’s leadership skills and willingness to just find a way.”
King thanks the GoldMiners for the opportunity and “regrets the season was cut short, because I believe we could’ve made some noise.”
