COMMITMENT ALERT | Chase Lammi commits to USports UPEI


Ottawa, ON – The Ottawa Jr. Senators are proud to announce the commitment of forward Chase Lammi to the USports UPEI (Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island) for the 2023-2024 season.

Lammi, 20, just recently played out his final season of junior with the Jr. Senators after being acquired in a trade with the Kemptville 73’s prior to the trade deadline.

“Chase was a perfect fit for our group,” said head coach Kyle Makaric. “With his addition, we solidified our lines up front and have found the right blend and chemistry on both of our powerplay units. He integrated seamlessly with our team and he brings the effort and intensity that we look to play with every night. It’s no surprise to us to see this commitment as he works on his craft every day and has had success as a player on the ice from his time in Kemptville and now playing with us. Can’t wait to see him at the next level and where this game can take him.”

The Sudbury native recorded 46 points (23 goals, 23 assists) in 47 games split between Kemptville and OJS this past season. Since joining the champs, Lammi tallied 12 goals and 10 helpers. Over a 136-game CCHL career, Lammi has totaled 53 goals and 71 assists, for a total of 124 points.

In the playoffs, Lammi caught fire posting a league-leading 24 points (10 goals, 14 assists) in the 17-game run to the Bogart Cup. Lammi also posted a pair of goals at the Centennial Cup.

“I’m super grateful to the OJS organization for helping me achieve this commitment,” outlined Lammi. “The organization as a whole has grown me as a player and person. The staff and my teammates have pushed me and helped improve my game so I’m ready to take the next step at the USports level. Committing to UPEI is a dream come true and I’m excited for the adventure ahead. I couldn’t be happier being a part of such an amazing school and hockey program. I’m looking forward to furthering my education and hockey at the University of PEI.”

A hard-working two-way forward, Lammi broke into junior hockey during the 2018 playoffs with the NOJHL’s Rayside-Balfour Canadians, before spending his 16-year-old season with the Espanola Express. Prior to his time in junior hockey, Lammi suited up for the Sudbury Wolves and Nickel City Sons minor hockey associations.

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