’02 Mark Hillier Commits to Merrimack


The Merrimack men’s hockey team received a verbal commitment from ’02-born forward Mark Hillier, a Newfoundland native who plays for St. Andrew’s College.

In 61 combined games for the CAHS and CISAA teams last season, Hillier finished with 23 goals and 22 assists as the 15-year-old on the varsity roster. During his last season of bantam hockey in 2017, Hillier posted 30 goals and added 29 assists in just 28 games en route to being named Most Valuable Player and Top Scorer for the provincial AAA bantam hockey league.

Hillier also represented Team Canada at the 2018 International Street and Ball Hockey Federation (ISBHF) U16 World Junior Cup this past summer in the Czech Republic, where the Canadians won gold.

Hillier was selected in the fourth round of the 2018 QMJHL Entry Draft by the Moncton Wildcats.
