Capitals forward Luke Haymes commits to Dartmouth College!

The Cowichan Capitals are excited to announce that 18 year old forward Luke Haymes has committed to Dartmouth College to play NCAA Division 1 after graduating from junior hockey. Haymes, from Ottawa, Ontario is in his first season with the Caps after playing for Ridley College the past two seasons. In his only season of action at Ridley, Haymes scored 12 goals and 31points in 29 games during the 2019-20 campaign.

“I chose Dartmouth because of the rapid development of the hockey program and everything that surrounds the school. The coaching staff has a winning history and bringing in coaches with winning experience like Coach (Jason) Tapp and new head Coach Reid Cashman who was with the Washington Capitals really sold me on the program. The development opportunities I will have while there hockey wise is top of the line and i’m extremely excited to pursue a great education. The end goal is to play pro hockey and Dartmouth is the best fitting school to help me reach that goal” said Haymes.

Haymes scored 3 goals in 5 preseason games this year, and tallied his first BCHL goal on October 10th in Victoria. Haymes is the 6th player on the Capitals to secure an NCAA commitment, joining David Jacobs and Nick Marciano (Princeton), Aidan Cobb (Cornell), Eli Pilosof (Brown), and Owen Simpson (Connecticut). League wide there are more than 120 players that have already committed to NCAA Division 1 Hockey Programs
