The Florida Eels are thrilled to announce Mathew Schoer has committed to Westfield State University ACHA Div. 2 program for the Fall 2022.
We are indeed excited about Matthew’s signing with Westfield State University’s program. Matthew has been an outstanding netminder since joining the Eels. This year, he played in 14 regular season games played 958 minutes, had 14 wins, only 20 GA, 6 shutouts, a 1.25 GAA and an impressive .958sav %. This season, he was scouted and recruited by quite a few college teams, but Matthew simply liked what WSU had to offer in terms of academics and hockey. As he said it is a perfect fit for him. He is looking forward to studying in New England, as it is the heart of academia. The area is so rich in culture and education. There will be so many fantastic opportunities for his future. And we all know the deep roots in hockey.
Schoer is high character individual says General Manager Frank Scarpaci. We had our eyes on Matt for several years and we brought him to the USPHL Spring Showcase last year and he was lights out in 4 games. Premier coach Frankie Scarpaci echoed, “We knew we had a legit goaltender on our hands. In fact, we signed him right at the showcase. All of the Eels coaches were uniformly in agreement.”
The Eels Elite head coach Mitch Hill, commented, “This kid plays a big-league game. He possesses outstanding skills set. He settles things down for his team. Gives them a chance to win…Has ice water in his veins. He was a real winner as his record with the Eels reflects. He was part of the incredible tantum of him and Jake Mork. It is unusual to have two goalies on the same team who are the two best in the league and support one another.
His commitment marks the Eels 304th college commitment for our Eels program. This is an impressive quite accomplishment. Advancing players to college is always the Eels end game. It has been an honor and a privilege to have had Matt play for our Eels Elite team and be an integral part of our program this season. We wish Matt the very best in his college career.
