The Miramichi Timberwolves have announced that forward Alex Lewis has committed to Norwich University, an NCAA Division III school, for the 2021-22 season.
The 21-year-old from Moncton, N.B. was drafted by Miramichi in the 3rd round, 36th overall, in the 2016 MHL Entry Draft. He played three games with the Timberwolves in the 2016-17 season, followed by five games in the 2017-18 season where he tallied one assist in five games. He spent the 2018-19 season with the CCHL’s Pembroke Lumber Kings, where he scored six goals to go with twelve assists in 60 games. Lewis was dealt to Smith Falls for the 2019-20 season, and he accumulated eight goals and 38 assists in 46 games.
Lewis was re-acquired by the Timberwolves in February 2021. In six regular season games with Miramichi, he had one goal and four assists in six games.
The MHL congratulates Lewis on his post-secondary commitment.
