The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers Junior team, proud members of the Eastern Hockey League, is pleased to announce that defenseman Anton Martino has committed to play ACHA Division I Ice Hockey for the University of Michigan Dearborn Wolverines who play in the Wolverine Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC). His commitment begins in September 2020.
Martino, 20, played two seasons with the Jr. Flyers starting his first year with the Premier team and then moved up to the EHL team a quarter into the season. He had twenty-six points (5 goals and 21 assists) in 92 games.
This past season the 6’1”, 160 lb. Glen Ridge, NJ native had eleven points (2 goals and 9 assists) in 43 regular season games.
“I would like to thank my family for all of their support as well as my teammates” said Martino. “I also would like to thank and coach Domish for his help and support” concluded Martino.
“Anton came to us a year ago and started on our EHLP team” stated Domish. “After a couple of months, we gave him a few games at the EHL level, and he never looked back. He is someone who knows how to make the most out of an opportunity. This year he was a top four defenseman and was a key to our defensive core. I know he will do well at the next level as he is an extremely hard worker who will work for what he wants. I wish him the best in the future” concluded Domish.
