Noah Matulu commits to Royal Military College Paladins

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick – Noah Matulu, a 19-year-old forward from Shediac, New Brunswick, will join the Royal Military College (RMC) Paladins of the Ontario University League East (OUA – East). The Paladins are based in Kingston, Ontario.

Noah Matulu played the last two full seasons with the Edmundston Blizzard. In 96 games, he compiled a record of 22 goals and 28 assists. His 50 career points rank him 20th in Blizzard history.

“Over the past two seasons in Edmundston, I’ve met some great people and made friendships that will last a lifetime,” said Noah Matulu. I can’t thank everyone enough for making my last two junior years so memorable. The Blizzard organization also helped me mature as a player and as a person, helping me get to the next level in my hockey career.”

“To add, Edmundston may not be the biggest city, but the way its fans show up every night at the Jean-Daigle Centre is second to none. Their presence and the atmosphere they bring to the game is incredible. Without a doubt, I’m 100% convinced that we have the best fans in all of Junior A hockey in Canada.”

In Kingston, Matulu will join former Blizzard player, defenseman/forward Ben Lightbody, who has played with the Paladins for the past two campaigns. The Paladins finished eighth in their league this past season with a 7-19-2 record.

Noah Matulu recently gave his comments on the Paladins website. “When I heard about the program, I thought it would be a perfect fit for me,” Matulu said. “It was an opportunity that I just couldn’t pass up on. I have heard nothing but great things about RMC and it is truly an honour to wear the Paladins colours. I can’t wait to get things started in Kingston.”

“We look forward to Noah bringing some size and the grit in his game that will align great with the RMC identity,” said Paladin’s head coach Richard Lim on the team’s web site. “Watching Noah play, I knew immediately he would be a great fit for our program as we look to return to being one of the hardest times to play against.”

The Blizzard management would like to thank Noah for his service to the team and wish him every success in his studies and with his new team.
