Five more local high school hockey prospects who are already committed to play hockey in college.
Michael Young – Rivers School – A staunch five year prospect patrolling the blue line in Weston, Young has committed to play hockey at UConn. At 6’1” and 220 pounds Young has great size for a defenseman. It will be interesting to see if Young goes directly to Storrs next year or if he chooses to play a season in the USHL as to this point in his career he has only played in the MSHL.
Tony Anderozzi – Rivers School – Anderozzi is another Rivers defenseman who will go on to play hockey at Brown University. Anderozzi first began playing at Wichester High and then made his way to Weston. Anderozzi could be on campus at Brown as early as the 2019-20 season.
Mark Gallant – Groton – A 2000 birth year Gallant has committed to play hockey at Colgate. Gallant has played varsity hockey since his eigth grade year at Groton. Gallant also plays for the acclaimed ’00 Islanders hockey club in the offseason. Being an ’00 Gallant is set to play two more seasons of Prep hockey before going to Colgate but could also choose to play in the USHL for a year or two.
Jack Rathbone – Dexter – Rathbone is a very talented offensive defenseman at 5’10” and 165 pounds. As a sophomore playing for Dexter Rathbone had 26 points which is an ashtonishing number for such a young defenseman. Rathbone has played at a very high level since a young age playing for the South Shore Kings hockey club and now playing for the Cape Cod Whalers. Rathbone will most likely enroll right away at Harvard in the fall of 2018 as he has played against good competition. His father played at Boston College.
Patrick Choi – Boston Junior Bruins – A 5’9” forward originally from South Korea who is now playing for the Boston Junior Bruins hockey club. Choi is a ’98 birth year and will eventually skate for Bentley. When Choi actually arrives on campus is still up in the air as he has a few years before he has to enroll in Waltham.
