Jack Lewis and Travis Hill to Make Pro Hockey Debuts Tonight

Just nine days after their collegiate careers came to an end, Lake Forest College seniors Jack Lewis and Travis Hill will continue playing hockey at the professional level tonight.

Lewis, a forward from London, Ontario, will suit up for the Norfolk Admirals, the East Coast Hockey League affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers, in the team's games against the Elmira Jackals at Norfolk Scope Arena on Friday and Saturday. He led the 2016-17 Foresters with 17 goals and 32 points and his 15 assists were tied for the team lead. The team captain continues to lead the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association in goals and power play goals (8) and was named NCHA Player of the Year.
