The Calvin College Knights are proud to officially announce the commitment of Matthew Greenwood.

Matt played at Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy last season and put up 16 goals and 8 assists in 30 games while playing on his team’s top line.  He’s a gritty forward that was awarded his team’s Most Improved Player.

Head Coach Mike Petrusma had this to say about Matthew and his commitment to the Knights:

“Matt comes from CVCA where we’ve had at least one player in the program in nearly half of my time coaching at Calvin.  They run a quality program in Ohio and I’m glad that Matt chose Calvin.  After watching him compete during our recruit skate, we offered him a spot in the program.  He hasn’t been in the sport as long as others, but he clearly has a passion for it.  I believe that he has a high ceiling and I’m excited to see what he can do against a higher level of competition.”

Why did Matthew choose Calvin?

“Calvin came to our school and set up one of their tables. I kind of wanted to go to a Christian school but they had to have hockey.  Also, near the end of the year at CVCA my line mate and close friend Josh Polanski said that he was going and he was playing hockey there. I looked into the school and found they had a good hockey program and on the school side had a great business program. On my visit, I loved the campus and the small school feeling that I had from CVCA. I met the Coach there and he was very informative and we had great conversation about what to expect.”
