The New Jersey Titans are excited to announce that Thomas Lacombe has signed a tender agreement with the team for the 2018-19 season.
Lacombe is a 17-year-old forward from Boisbriand, Quebec and spent the 2017-18 season with the Varsity U18 Bishop’s College School. In 48 games, Lacombe recorded 33 goals and 31 assists for 64 points. He was named to the first all star team of the Midwest Prep Hockey League and received the Gerald Wiggett Award for most valuable player.
“After all those years of hard work I’ve been doing so far, I think my path to college hockey is being pictured,” Lacombe said. “Last season was a transition year to a higher level of hockey and education, and now to have again the opportunity to be at a higher level of hockey is very promising. College Division I hockey is my main goal and I’m doing the best I can to reach this objective.”
The Quebec native spent some time in Middletown to meet the players and coaching staff first-hand before signing with the Titans. Lacombe spoke about the impression he was given when visiting the Garden State.
“My family and I are very happy to have tendered with the New Jersey Titans. I took time to decide what would be the best decision for me. With the hospitality, the welcoming of the organization and the acceptance of the players while I was in New Jersey, it made my decision easy,” he said. “The organization looks very professional and well qualified. I will give my best to the team as a hockey player and also as a person of the community.”
Titans head coach Craig Doremus also spoke about Lacombe’s tender agreement and praised the ’01 forward’s skill and work ethic.
“We are excited to add Thomas to our forward group next season. He is an extremely talented young center who we believe has untapped potential. He comes from a great program in Bishop’s College and we look forward to him being a big part of our team next year,” he said.
The Titans would like to congratulate Thomas and his family on his decision to become a part of the organization.
