UNH Recruits Update: Jan-14-2013

Player of the Week - Dylan Chanter

Last season, UNH recruit Dylan Chanter was one of only three 16-year-old defensemen to play the entire year in the British Columbia Hockey League. Chanter finished his rookie season with a very respectable 2 goals and 11 assists in 53 games. Now, at the ripe old age of 17, the 6'3", 195 lbs. member of the Merritt Centennials has become the leading goal scorer among all defensemen in the BCHL. To date, Chanter has posted 8 goals and 8 assists in 35 games. He is the second youngest player on the Cents' squad.

Chanter moved to the top of the list of goal scorers last Friday night in a barn-burner between the Cents and the Coquitlam Express. Chanter scored his first goal of the night in the first period as the Cents went ahead 2-0. Coquitlam caught up and went ahead 4-3 early in the third period. With 9 minutes left in regulation, Chanter tied the game with his second goal of the game. The Cents lost the game in double overtime on a penalty shot goal. Chanter was awarded the #2 Star of the game. Merritt is currently in second place in the Interior Division of the BCHL.

Dylan Chanter is in his senior year in high school. When he made his verbal commitment to UNH last February, U.S. Hockey Report indicated that his target date for admission was the Fall of 2014.
