Walpole, MA – The Walpole Express are proud to announce the commitment of Parker James to SUNY Fredonia for the fall of 2022.
The ’01 defenseman is the current captain and is in his second season with the Express.
Excited to join the Blue Devils this fall, James said, “Fredonia stood out to me as a school with a rich hockey history. It starts with Coach Meredith who is extremely dedicated to his players and the program. His lengthy tenure speaks for itself. Being able to continue my education at an established university, playing for a program that emphasizes the importance of building not just a hockey team but a hockey family was huge to me.”
Express Coach Josh Holmstrom calls James a “mature, tough player.”
“Parker plays a hard, physical game that makes it difficult on opponents. He is calm with the puck and makes good choices. As a new coaching staff, we leaned heavily on Parker to set the right examples. He has been a great leader for our program.”
On his experience playing for the Express, “Playing my last two years of junior hockey in Walpole is what allowed me to make my lifelong dream of playing collegiate hockey possible. I owe a lot to the organization and the two amazing coaches I have had the pleasure of playing for, Coach Campbell and Coach Holmstrom.”
The organization would like to congratulate Parker James on his NCAA college commitment.
