UNH Recruits Update: Dec-24-2012

Player of the Week - Brendan van Riemsdyk

The youngest son of the van Riemsdyk family is making his own mark at the Christian Brothers Academy in Lincroft, New Jersey. Like his brothers James and Trevor before him, 17-year-old Brendan van Riemsdyk has posted some impressive numbers for the CBA Colts. Over the first 9 games of the 2012-13 season, the 6'3", 189 lbs. forward has scored 3 goals and 12 assists. In their quest to return to the New Jersey Non-Public School Hockey Championship game, the Colts are currently in second place with a record of 7 wins, 1 loss and 1 tie. So far in his junior year at CBA, BvR is the team's third leading scorer and has the most assists, along with senior Glenn Florczak (who also plays for the Jersey Hitmen U-18 team).

In addition to playing a full slate of games for CBA, Brendan van Riemsdyk continues to play travel club hockey with the New Jersey Devils Youth Hockey Under-16 team. In 20 games, BvR has maintained a point-a-game clip with 12 goals and 10 assists. His 50 penalty minutes suggest that he plays with an edge. BvR is on target to enroll at UNH in either the fall of 2015 or 2016.
