Each Wednesday I will look to make this a running feature, highlighting commitments made across college hockey. I will try to predict when a player will arrive on campus but as we all know that can be flexible in NCAA Hockey. Check below to review the commitments made since June 28.
- Jace Foskey, Tri-City Storm (USHL)- Harvard. Foskey, who just turned 17 on June 1st is a 2018 NHL draft eligible defensemen from Southlake, TX. This past season was Foskey’s first in the USHL and he registered 3 goals, 11 points in 50 games played while being a -9. Foskey is a product of the Dallas Stars AAA program and projects to arrive to Cambridge in 2018-19 after another season in Tri-City.
- Eric Cooley, Amarillo Bulls (NAHL)- Niagara. Cooley, a Pennsylvania forward, just completed his first season in the NAHL with a 14-20-34 line in 51 games played. Cooley will likely be playing for Niagara next season looking to help pull the Purple Eagles out of the cellar of Atlantic Hockey with an offense that scored less than 2 goals per game last season (57th nationally.
- Drew Hotte, Johnstown Tomahawks (NAHL)-Boston University. Hotte is a goaltender from Pennsylvania who is 6’1″ 181 pounds and 20 years old. Hotte will be enrolling at BU this coming fall after posting a 2.43 goals against average and .913 save percentage in Johnstown. BU features goalie depth with returning senior Connor LaCouvee and sophomore Jake Oettinger, so Hotte is likely a depth add for the future
- Gianluca Esteves, Aston Rebels (NAHL)-Michigan State. We discussed Esteves here at the ELC earlier. Esteves will be coming to East Lansing for 2017-18 and adds playmaking ability to a rebuilding Spartans roster under 1st year head coach Danton Cole.
