Hamilton College is based out of Clinton, New York and academically is rated among the very best Liberal Arts schools in America.
Sean played 54 games for the Pontiacs scoring 8 goals and 23 assists along with 129 penalty minutes.
“I couldn’t be happier for Sean. He was an outstanding Pontiac both on and off the ice and his tremendous character enhanced the culture we have built with our program. Hamilton College is getting an outstanding player and even more importantly an excellent human being,” says Head Coach/General Manager Rick Swan.
Sean Thomson becomes the 60th to play for the Pontiacs and move on to the College level since 2014.
