Team Maryland is honored to announce that Bryce Montgomery has committed to play Division I hockey at Providence College. The Friars finished last season ranked 7th nationally and won their last National Championship in 2015. Providence plays in the Hockey East Conference alongside 11 other teams including storied programs like Boston College, Boston University, University of Maine, and the University of New Hampshire. .
Bryce Montgomery came to us after spending a year with the Washington Little Capitals. He was the only player in the program last season to play up an age level. A daunting task that didn’t seem to set him back while he amassed 23 points in 31 games and an All-Star selections in both the ECEL and AYHL as a defenseman.
“Coming off of a disappointing year, playing with older players on the TM U16 team helped me develop tremendously on and off the ice. Not to mention I had a whole lot of fun doing it. This definitely wouldn’t have been possible without the great coaches and players here at Team Maryland and it was awesome representing my home state again,” stated Montgomery.
“Bryce is proof that good things happen to good people. He is a phenomenal young man on and off the ice. His character is top notch and there is no question that his talent level is on par with the very best players in the country,” Hockey Director Chris Ceransky commented referring to Montgomery’s participation in USA Hockey’s National Development Camp. National Camp features the best players in the country. Bryce was selected as one of the camp’s all-stars this summer.
Montgomery marks the second Division I commitment for Team Maryland from the 2017-18 season joining his teammate Dom Basse, who announced his commitment to play for Colorado College earlier in the year. Team Maryland has had three NCAA commitments directly out of the program in the last two seasons.
Bryce had this to add about his success, “At the end of the day there is no way I would be where I am right now without my parents. Not only have they helped me earn this in every sense of the word, but they have taught me to be humble enough to know that the hard work is just beginning.”
Congratulations Bryce and the Montgomery family we wish you the best on your journey.
