Skylands defenseman Christopher makes NCAA commitment
The Skylands Kings, formerly of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that Top Prospects defenseman Trevor Christopher has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for SUNY-Canton.
Christopher, 20, capped off a remarkable two-year career with his second straight season averaging more than a point-per-game from the blue line en route to being named Northeast Division MVP and Defenseman of the Year for the 2019-20 season.
Christopher's offensive pedigree was clear during his rookie campaign -- the 5-foot-11, 175-pound native of Watertown, NY put up 20 goals and 32 assists in just 47 games -- but his sophomore season saw more development to the defensive side of things. While putting up another stunning 21 goals and 34 assists in 46 games, Christopher also improved his plus/minus from a -24 in year one to a +7 in 2019-20, while dropping his PIMs from 108 to 97.
Christopher's standout season earned him another bid to the Top Prospects Tournament in 2020, following his 2019 appearance at the event. In addition to his divisional award haul, Christopher was also named to the All-NA3HL Third Team for the 2019-20 season. He concludes his NA3HL career with 41 goals, 66 assists and 107 points in 93 games.
Christopher spent two seasons with the Ontario Hockey Academy 18U team from 2016-18, logging 51 games during two seasons and recording 18 points.
