Salminen Commits to Rivier University

Florida Eels are excited to announce the college commitment of Premier Forward Jared Salminen, to Rivier University for the 2024-2025 season. Salminen a four-year USPHL veteran started his Junior Hockey career with the Florida Jr. Blades, in 2020-2021 where he played for two seasons before joining the Florida Eels Premier in 2022. Over the course of his junior hockey career Salminen played in 168 games, had 52 goals, 101 assists, with a total of 153 points.

Florida native heads to Rivier University where he plans to study Sports Management. Salminen, states he is “excited about the goals of the (hockey) program” and his future on the team. Salminen will head North this fall leaving his family, who live locally in Florida. Salminen, credits his success to the “support of my family throughout my (junior) years.”

Salminen enjoyed his time time with the Florida Eels and appreciates the “coaching staff who work hard at providing opportunities for everyone.” Jared part of the tenacious “coneheads” line, along with College Commits Devin Shepherd (Framingham State University) and Noah Trathen (University of Massachusetts Dartmouth), were a dominant force on the ice. However, Jared’s 6’2”, 195 pound presence was a force in itself. Salminen was as dedicated to his office training as his on ice, and helped lead the Eels to two playoff victories, and to the Semi-Finals of Nationals.

Jared Salminen will be joining Eels Alumni Damon Kiyawasew at Rivier Univeristy in the Fall. He will be a wonderful asset to the Rivier family and will continue to be a wonderful representive of the Eels. Congratulations Jared, the Eels wish you all the best in your college career.
