IHM Client Max Danis Signs With Bollnas
International Hockey Management is proud to announce that client, Maxime Danis, has signed with Bollnäs IS in Sweden's HockeyTrean (Division 3). The forward recently graduated from New England College, after four years of NCAA D-III hockey. The Waterloo, Quebec native stands 6’1, and weighs 185 pounds. Danis was born August 18, 1997, and can play wing or center.
Danis was a four-time Dean’s List honoree at New England College, including being named to the 2018-2019 New England Hockey Conference All-Academic Team. Max previously attended Hebron Academy (US-Prep), where he was 3rd on the team in Goals, 4th in Points, and was a two-time Dean’s List honoree. In his final collegiate season, the NEC Pilgrims Men’s Hockey Team went to the NEHC Semi-Finals, before losing to Hobart College. Max played ice hockey, lacrosse, and soccer at New England College.
Bollnäs, Sweden is located in Gävleborg county, about three hours north of Stockholm. The town has a population of just under 30,000 people. Bollnäs IS play in Bollnäs Ishall, which is the former youth home of 600+ game NHLer, Stanley Cup Champion, and 1st Round Pick of the Detroit Red Wings, Anders Eriksson.
International Hockey Management President, Chris White, commented,
“We’re very excited Max not only garnered interest, and was given an opportunity, but that he jumped at the chance to go prove himself at the senior level. Max was a special athlete in college, but was splitting his focus and effort between three NCAA sports. Now, he will dive all-in with hockey, and we anticipate him having a very strong season for Bollnäs. The organization was great to work with, and they are very happy to have Max on their roster."
Bollnäs IS Sports Director, Jens Eriksson, noted,
"We are exited to get to know Max as a player, and as a person, this upcoming season. We were looking for a forward with good size that can set up his linemates with some good passes in the offensive zone, and at the same time, be as good in the defensive part of the game. I have a good feeling that Max will bring us just that.
It’s equally important what kind of person he is, and that he can be a good teammate, with good values. We don’t know Max yet, but it helps that he has been to a great college, and earned his degree. That tells us that he doesn’t quit, and that he has good ambitions; and that builds character. So, we are looking forward to see him on the ice very soon!"
Upon signing his contract offer, Max said,
"Working with IHM was great. They helped me more than I could’ve ever asked for. They made my part of the signing process a lot easier, and I am very excited to be able to continue my career; mostly because of them!"
