Woodstock signs Dylan Fitzpatrick

Brewer, ME– Former Brewer standout Dylan Fitzpatrick will look to take his game up north. The Travis Roy finalist will continue his hockey career with the Woodstock Slammers of the Maritime Junior “A” Hockey League.

“This opportunity came about by the recommendation of Guy Perron to the Slammers head coach Jason (Tatarnic), who contacted me and asked me if I would like to sign to his team as a free agent,” Dylan Fitzpatrick said on Thursday afternoon.

The 18-year-old forward was the Class A East leading scorer this past season as he potted 27 goals and 24 assists for the Witches. In his four seasons with Brewer, he had 117 goals and 98 assists. He is also a two time First All State Selection.

“Dylan has been the top player in the Maine High School hockey system and has demonstrated the ability to provide offense. Dylan will be a welcomed addition up front as we continue to build for 2009-2010 campaign,” said Jason Tatarnic in the team’s press release.

He decided on the MJAHL from talking to a college coach.

“I chose this league by recommendation from a highly respected college coach,” says Fitzpatrick. “He told me that this was one of the better leagues around, and if I could cut it in this league and showcase my ability and be a standout, then I had a great chance to play for some D1 or D3 college hockey teams.”

Fitzpatrick goal is to play Division I college hockey but will keep his options open.

“My goal is by far to play D1 hockey,” Fitzpatrick says. Like I said before, if I can stand out in the MJAHL, then I have a good chance to play at some good schools, if not play in the QMJHL.”
