Andranik Armstrong, 18, will suit up for the Bandits in 2018-19 after spending the last three seasons with Kimball Union Academy in Meriden, New Hampshire, part of the New England Prep School Ice Hockey Association.
This past season, the 5’9”, 190lb forward scored 50 points (19 goals, 31 assists) in 37 games for KUA in his senior season while serving as an alternate captain, helping to lead the team to a second consecutive New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Elite 8 championship.
In three total years with KUA, Armstrong scored 95 points (32 goals, 63 assists) in 111 games.
He committed to the University of Massachusetts-Lowell earlier this year, where he will join fellow Bandit alumnus Cale List (Petawawa, ON) when he begins his NCAA career.
He is also the fourth KUA alumnus to play for the Bandits, after last year’s leading scorer Conner Jean (Oakland, MI), alternate captain Nic Hamre (Ottawa, ON), and former captain Dennis Cesana (Providence, RI). He joins the team alongside his three-year KUA teammate Thomas Samuelsen (Williston, VT).
