Rams add Craievich to 2018-19 recruiting class
TORONTO - The Ryerson Rams men’s hockey team has announced that Adam Craievich will suit up for the Rams in 2018-19, becoming Ryerson's fourth commitment of this year’s recruiting class.
Craievich, a six foot one right-winger, has spent the last two seasons with the Caledonia Corvairs of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL). With three Ontario Hockey League (OHL) seasons under his belt, Craievich brings a diverse set of skills to Ryerson’s forward group.
“Adam is exactly the type of student-athlete we are looking to add at Ryerson,” says Rams head coach Johnny Duco. “We are excited to watch him excel both academically and athletically.”
The Sarnia, Ont. native tallied 93 points (46 goals, 47 assists) in 41 games in his first GOJHL season in 2016-17, earning him the title of the league’s best goal scorer. Most recently, with 81 points (37 goals, 44 assists) in 46 games played this season, Craievich earned himself GOJHL Player of the Year
“Adam is a big strong power forward that loves to take the puck to the net,” continues Duco. “He has a nose for the net which was on display while he scored 99 goals over the last two seasons.”
Craievich was drafted to the Guelph Storm in the third round of the 2013 OHL Entry Draft. He played one and a half seasons with the Storm before being traded to the Ottawa 67’s midway through 2015. Craievich ended his OHL career with 41 points (16 goals, 25 points) in 171 games.
Craievich won an OHL Championship in 2013-14 with the Storm. In the same year, he was awarded the Ivan Tennant Award as the OHL’s Top Academic High School Player.
Craievich will enter Ryerson’s Accounting and Finance program in September 2018.
