Lauber commits to Liberty University
The Dragons have announced that defenseman Chaydan Lauber has committed to play at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Lauber, a 6-foot, 2-inch tall, 220-pound defenseman for the Drumheller Dragons, played 51 games for the squad. Last season he had three goals, nine assists and 94 PIM. The Duchess native has also played for the Olds Grizzlys and the Calgary Canucks.
“I got a good feeling about the place. I met with a few of the captains, a total of five players, and it feels like one big family,” said Lauber in a story on the Liberty Sport Club website. “I’m really looking forward to being around so many good people and knowing everyone around you believes in the same thing you do. Hopefully, I can be a leader for this team both on and off the ice and help them win the (ACHA Division I) National Championship.”
The Liberty Flames play in the American Collegiate Athletic Association (ACHA) Division 1.
There are some family connections to the program as Lauber’s father is second cousin to associate head coach Jeff Boettger. Coaches like the look of Lauber.
“He’s a big, strong defenseman and a guy who will be an excellent addition both on and off the ice for us,” Liberty Head Coach Kirk Handy said. “He sees the ice well. He’ll be a great addition on the back end to give us some size and strength. He’s going to come in and work hard and be real steady back there.”
Lauber is looking into studying business management or administration. He wishes to continue his hockey career after college.
