Jersey Hitmen Captain Trevor Owens Commits to Northeastern

Trevor Owens, a junior hockey veteran, will bring leadership and experience beyond his years to Northeastern in the fall.

Jersey Hitmen captain Trevor Owens has committed to play college hockey for head coach Jim Madigan at Northeastern University. The six-foot-one defenseman from Raleigh, NC is known for his toughness and physicality, but he can step into the offense without a problem. Owens has four goals and 10 assists to go along with 49 penalty minutes in 24 games played this season.

Owens is a rink rat who loves learning the game of hockey and is dedicated to perfecting his task.

"Trevor Owens is the epitome of a player who leads by example. He is always the first guy at the rink and the last to leave," said his junior coach, Toby Harris.

Northeastern is getting a terrific all around student-athlete and leader, according to Harris. "He greets everyone with a smile and takes time with our youth program. Northeastern is getting a dynamic leader and a talented human being."

Owens, a '93, has previously played in the USHL with the Chicago Steel, Waterloo Blackhawks and Indiana Ice. He was a member of the Jersey Hitmen's EJHL Championship team last season. He will matriculate to Northeastern in the fall to begin playing for the Huskies.
