Walpole, MA - Walpole Express’ Timmy Thurnau has committed to Elmira College in Elmira, NY for the fall of 2016. The 6’1”, 180 lbs. winger from West Chester, OH is a gritty forward who has been a big part of Walpole's success over the past two seasons. He’ll no doubt be a welcome addition to the Soaring Eagles, which play in the very competitive ECAC West Conference.
"Timmy came to us from the Tier 1 Columbus Blue jackets and was a big piece of our success here in Walpole,” said Express Head Coach Jon Lounsbury. “He made an impact from day one. Timmy has been one of the most consistent players I have ever coached. Each practice and game I knew exactly what he was going to bring and his impressive numbers are a product of his work ethic. He will be missed in Walpole next season."
“I would like to thank my parents, coaches and everyone else who has helped me achieve my dream of playing college hockey,” Thurnau said. “I'm overjoyed to be moving on to the next chapter of my life at Elmira College!"
“The entire Express organization extends heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to Timmy and his family,” Lounsbury said.
