The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Patrick Ko­lafa

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.
