New England defenseman Barone makes NCAA commitment
March 15, 2019
The New England Stars of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that defenseman Chris Barone has committed to play NCAA Division II hockey at Assumption College.
Barone, 19, is a 5’9/180 lbs. native Sterling, Massachusetts. He has registered 7 goals and 16 assists for 23 points in 46 games this season for the Stars.
He was also selected to and played in the 2019 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament for the Coastal Division team, where he had one point in three games. Overall in his three-year NA3HL career with the Stars, he has played in 104 career regular season games and recorded 37 points.
“Chris came to our program three years ago as a 16-year-old and has improved significantly over that time. He is a solid all-around defenseman that can play in any situation. He is physical, defends hard, and moves the puck up ice. This is a true example of developing a young player into a college ready player,” said Stars Head Coach Darryl Green.
Assumption College is a NCAA Division II University that competes in the Northeast-10 (NE10). The Assumption College campus is centrally located in rural, residential neighborhood of Worcester, MA. The Greyhounds play out of Charles J. Buffone Arena.
“I'm very excited to be on board with the Assumption Greyhounds and to have the opportunity to attend such a great school. I am also extremely grateful to Dan, Darryl, Zach, and all my teammates from the New England Stars for helping me get to the next level,” said Barone.
