Lucarelli Commits To BCHL’s Powell River Kings
Chatham’s Anthony Lucarelli has committed to play Junior A hockey next season for the BCHL’s Powell River Kings.
Lucarelli was slated to play this season for the Chatham Maroons. He led the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs in scoring the year prior.
“Anthony is a big body who moves well, has good offensive instincts and has a knack for the net. This was a pretty tough season in regards to development through games played, but Anthony had a very good season with the Chiefs and was scheduled to play in the GOJHL with Chatham,” Power River general manager Chad van Diemen said in a team news release.
“We feel he is ready to make the move to the BCHL and are excited to work with him to help achieve his goal of playing NCAA hockey.”
Following Lucarelli’s strong U18 campaign with Elgin-Middlesex, he was selected by the OHL’s London Knights 39th overall in the OHL’s U18 Draft.
Lucarelli is excited for the next step in his hockey career.
“I am very happy to be able to make this jump. The BCHL is a great league to be in and I cannot wait to get started,” said Lucarelli in the league news release. “I’m looking forward to competing at a very high level of hockey with a good group of players next season.”
