COMMITMENT ALERT | Anton Sorensen commits to NCAA DIII Adrian College


Ottawa, ON – The Ottawa Jr. Senators are proud to announce the commitment of forward Anton Sorensen to NCAA DIII Adrian College (Adrian, Michigan) for the 2023-2024 season.

Sorensen, 20, is currently skating in his final junior season after joining the club at the beginning of the year in a deal with the BCHL’s Merritt Centennials.

“We are thrilled for Sores to be committing to Adrian College,” said head coach Kyle Makaric. “They are a top program in Division 3 hockey and have been for many years now. The players are treated extremely well there and the results on and off the ice speak for themselves. Anton will fit in at that level with his high-end hockey IQ and playmaking ability.”

The Wheaton, Illinois native is currently riding the best season of his career, amassing 54 points (18 goals and 36 assists) in 53 games. Sorensen ranks tied for 15th in league scoring and ninth in assists. Since January 10, the crafty two-way forward has recorded points in 15 of his last 21 games and has eight goals and 18 assists over that stretch.

“I’m excited to announce my commitment to Adrian College,” explained Sorensen. “I want to thank my family, coaches, teammates, and friends that have helped me get to this point. “The OJS family has been unbelievable. All the way from the coaching staff to my billet family. It truly is a class organization from top to bottom. I couldn’t have made a better choice to play my last year of junior.”

Prior to OJS, Sorensen played minor hockey for the Chicago Mission and also spent time with the Boston Jr. Bruins system. Sorensen’s father, Anders Sorensen, is currently in his second season as the bench boss of the Rockford Ice Hogs, the AHL affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks.

Sorensen becomes the third member of the 2022-2023 Junior Senators to commit to a post-CCHL program, joining Vincent Velocci (Amherst College) and Owen Protz (Sudbury Wolves).
