Detroit Free Press Article Highlights Ferris Hockey Student-Athlete Eric Alexander

Ferris State University hockey student-athlete Eric Alexander (pictured) has enjoyed quite a summer with his performance in the recent Washington Capitals Summer Development Camp.

The Detroit Free Press has an article in its online edition that includes an interview with Alexander, a native of Kentwood in the Grand Rapids area, and highlights his efforts at the camp.

Here is an excerpt from the story written by Detroit Free Press writer George Sipple:

On players he knew at camp: "Andy Miele (Grosse Pointe Woods) was on my line. We were teammates on the Chicago Steel three years ago. Chris Forfar, he goes to Michigan State. There's a couple other kids: Ian Ruel (Ann Arbor) and my teammate Taylor Nelson."

Scoring a couple goals in the scrimmages, after scoring three goals last season at Ferris: "I think last year I didn't get as big of an opportunity as I could have. I played on the fourth line, and it's hard to generate offense when you don't get a lot of opportunities. At camp, they rolled the lines pretty well, and you're playing with the best players around your age. That helps, too."
