 Elijah Harris is Bound for Brown
Months after VJW alum Mike Vecchione led Union College to its first-ever NCAA Hockey Championship, another ECAC school scooped up a Warrior standout.

Elijah Harris, netminder for the VJW ’97 Elite team that advanced to the USA Hockey National Championship in March, announced that he has committed to Brown University beginning with the 2015-16 season.
