The Topeka RoadRunners of the North American Hockey League have announced that forward Cam Strong has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at Dartmouth College (ECAC) in Hanover, N.H.
Strong skated for the Colorado Rampage 18U AAA team from 2012-14, scoring 41 points in 76 games and making a trip to the USA Hockey National Tournament.
Now the RoadRunners’ captain, Strong will enroll at Dartmouth in the fall of 2016.
The Billings, Mt., native is in his second season as a RoadRunner and has posted 32 points (10 goals, 22 assists) and a plus-16 rating in 39 games this year.
“I am honored to be heading to a tremendous Ivy League institution like Dartmouth,” Strong said. “The coaching staff, the facilities, the tradition and the education Dartmouth offers are exactly what I was looking for.”
Strong’s coach, Josh Kamrass, said Strong is headed down a tremendous path.
“Getting an Ivy League education is something that Cam was focused on, and we couldn’t be happier for him,” Kamrass said. “Cam has the type of character that the RoadRunners look for in players, and the organization is very proud of him. All of his hard work is paying off.”
Strong said he is grateful for the opportunity given by the RoadRunners.
“I’m so glad I made the decision to come to Topeka,” Strong said. “It’s a top-flight organization and the players are treated first-class. The memories I am taking away from my junior days, with my great teammates, will last forever.”
