He led the BC Major Midget League in assists with 52, has been committed to by the Langley Rivermen, and now 17 year-old Justin Szeto has earned a Division I scholarship to Harvard University, one of the world’s elite post-secondary institutions, and all in less than a year and before suiting up in his first BCHL game.
That right there tells you a lot about the Vancouver native who continues to excel both on and off the ice.
A dedicate student, Szeto is about to enter into his grade 12 year and despite his young age has a clear focus for his academic and athletic future, and as he says, what better place to accomplish both than with the Harvard Crimson.
Szeto was a huge part of the Vancouver North West Giants last season where he put up a whopping 77 points, third best in the league adding another eight points in six playoff games. Szeto combines speed and smarts on the ice with a commitment to bettering himself in the classroom. This coming season will be one of change for him, moving to Langley and starting his junior hockey career. But with his college future already secured, Szeto can continue to focus on a big year ahead.
