Cranbrook Bucks 19-year-old forward Cooper Boulanger has announced his commitment to play NCAA Division I hockey at Air Force Academy.

The 2003-born product of Barre, VT has tallied 11 assists through 24 games with the Bucks this season.

Boulanger revealed the news via his Twitter account on Thursday morning.

“I’m extremely excited to announce my commitment to continue my academic career and play division 1 hockey at The Air Force Academy,” Boulanger tweeted.

He continued, “thank you to my family, friends and coaches who have supported me along the way.”

Boulanger is in his first BCHL season with Cranbrook after spending the previous four campaigns playing United States High School Prep hockey with Holderness School.

During his last season with Holderness in 2021-22, Boulanger served as team captain and led the team in assists with 29 and points with 42. His 13 goals ranked third on the team as well.

Boulanger concluded his four-year career at Holderness with 21 goals and 42 assists for 63 points in 88 games played.

He will join former Bucks forward Liam Hansson when he begins his NCAA career at Air Force Academy.

Cranbrook has now had three players commit to Div. I schools so far this season, including Boulanger, Luke Pfoh, and Cam Kungle.

A total of seven players have now earned Div. I commitments while playing in Cranbrook, with Noah Quinn, Kellan Hjartarson, Rhys Bentham, and Tyson Dyck committing last year.

The Bucks current roster now features 11 players committed to playing NCAA Div. I hockey in the coming seasons.
