North Andover, MA – Danny Ferri from Chelmsford, MA has decided to take his academic and hockey career to the western side of Massachusetts where he will attend Westfield State University next fall.
Danny is the 2nd IHC Elite player to make his college decision. He’s currently leading the Islanders Hockey Club Elite squad in total points as he’s accumulated 19 goals and 18 assists for 37 PTS in 26 games. 

“He’s been rock solid all season long” said head coach Tim Kyrkostas.  Kyrkostas added “Danny has an amazing shot and he’s so strong on his skates and on the puck. He’s been leading our team by example each and every day this year. Whenever we have needed a big goal or a big play he’s delivered. I am just so proud of him and happy for his entire family. I know he’s going to be a great player for Head Coach Bob Miele next season and beyond.”
“I am really excited about my decision to play for Westfield State next season. I want to thank my parents, all of my past coaches and past & current teammates as well as Coach Tim Kyrkostas for helping me develop and to get to this point. Playing for coach Tim Kyrkostas and the Islanders Hockey Program has been one of the best decisions that I have ever made in my hockey career. I have never played for a coach who genuinely cares about each of his players. He pushes all of us hard every day because he wants to see us all reach our fullest potential. I am happy to now simply concentrate on the rest of the season as I believe we have a great team and a great shot at winning the league title said Ferri”.
