The Battlefords North Stars are pleased to announce that Coby Downs has committed to join the Norwich University Men’s Hockey team in the fall. The Norwich Cadets are a member in the NCAA Division III New England Hockey Conference (NEHC). The Norwich Cadets’ current NCAA Division III Overall Record is 21-1-3 which puts them at the top of their league.
Downs is a 20 year old from Montclair, California who has played in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League for two seasons, both with the Battlefords North Stars. Downs has been a huge asset to the North Stars during his time with the team. So far this season with the North Stars he has earned second top scorer on the team with 62 points in just 41 games. Downs started the 2016-17 season with the Omaha Lancers before returning back to the Battlefords in early October.
“It’s been a pleasure to coach Coby this year,” says North Stars head coach and general manager Nate Bedford. “He is a top end player that plays with a lot of heart. He is going to be an excellent student athlete at Norwich University”
On behalf of the North Stars’ organization, we would like to congratulate Coby on this accomplishment and wish him continued success both academically and athletically while attending Norwich University.
