Paul Weisser on the ice

7/28/2011

Recent graduate Paul Weisser has been selected to play in the Edge Sports Europe Pro Hockey Exposure Tour this summer.

Weisser, who concluded his four-year Suffolk University hockey career during the 2010-11 season, will be part of a select U.S. team competing against professional teams in France. $

More than half of Edge Sports' previous two overseas rosters have gone on to sign professional contracts in the Magnus League in France, which is considered to be the country’s top professional hockey league.

The team will tour Paris before opening against Reims of the Magnus League on Aug. 15. The team will play Strasbourg the next day, then compete in a four-day tournament in Colmar, France.

Rams achievement

As a senior, Weisser appeared in all 24 of the Rams contests, tallying 10 points on three goals and seven assists. In 96 career games for the University, Weisser scored 19 goals and 33 assists for a career total of 52 points.

His best season came during his junior year, when he totaled 20 points, scoring eight times with 12 assists. During the 2009-10 season, Weisser led the Rams with three game-winning goals.

Weisser was awarded with the Suffolk University Athletics Departmental Recognition Award this past year.

He served as an assistant captain during the 2010-11 season and also helped take the lead on the team's many community efforts, such as a Toys for Tots drive and Breast Cancer Awareness efforts. Weisser also served as a student ambassador in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, welcoming and providing information about the University to prospective students.
