“I am very excited to announce my commitment to play college hockey at Concordia College. This would have never been possible without the support from all my coaches in Springfield; they pushed me every day to get better and gave me countless opportunities,” Donnelly said, adding “I would also like to thank my parents for being my number one fan as this would have never been possible without them.”
Concordia College plays in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, and the Cobbers are coming off of a strong season, posting a 14-11-2 record and reaching the MIAC Semifinal.
“We would like to congratulate Matt and his family on the commitment to Concordia College. Matt joined our program from the New Jersey Hitmen, and is Dineen Cup Champion and former captain at Culver Academy. He is a highly skilled forward that was a great addition to our program on and off the ice,” Springfield Pics head coach and general manager Patrick Tabb said, adding that “We leaned on him to provide our club with a veteran presence that knew what it takes to win on a consistent basis. Matt loves the game, and he has a real opportunity entering the NCAA level to be an impact freshman forward with his skill set. We are excited to see him progress at the college level.”
