Western Michigan has announced the signing of Trevor Elias to a National Letter of Intent to add to WMU’s 2009 recruiting class.
Elias, a forward, comes to WMU from Calgary and the Langley Chiefs of the British Columbia Hockey League. In three years with the Chiefs, he played in 157 games, tallying 55 goals and 100 assists. His most recent season was his most productive of his three seasons. While he only played in 43 games, he was still able to tally a career high 56 points off of 14 goals and 42 assists.
“Trevor is a very complete player and adds a speed element,” commented Broncos assistant coach Scott Robson. “He has very good offensive ability and sees the ice very well. He combines that with excellent hockey sense and defensive awareness.”
Elias was the Chiefs’ rookie of the year and playoff most valuable player during the 2006-07 season. He was named the team’s unsung hero during the 2007-08 campaign and recently named the fan favorite during his final year.
He joins Ross Henry, Ben Miller, Matt Tennyson, Brett Beebe and Luke Witkowski, who signed their letters of intent on previous dates, and will all suit up for WMU in the fall.
