"Thomas Kramer comes from an outstanding character family and great program with Boston College High School and we were tremendously fortunate to have had him in a PONTIAC uniform for the 2019/20 season. He is a born leader who comes to the rink everyday with intention and purpose with the goal of being the very best that he can be," says Head Coach and General Manager Rick SWAN. He made an immediate impact in our program and in our community and on behalf of the Bonnyville community and the PONTIACS organization we wish him all the success in both his hockey and academic journey at Babson.
