High-scoring forward Roman Gaudet has parlayed parts of two seasons with the Soo Eagles of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League into a Division 3, National Collegiate Athletic Association commitment.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Michigander is headed to New York to play for the Morrisville State Mustangs.
Gaudet, who has a 1996 birth date, put up big point numbers during 56 NOJHL games with the Eagles over parts of the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 campaigns.
Regular season and playoffs included, Gaudet scored 34 goals, 42 assists, 76 points in the 56 appearances with the Eagles.
Eagles general manager/associate coach Bruno Bragagnolo said Gaudet has the ability to excel at the college level.
“There is no question about Roman’s ability as a hockey player,” Bragagnolo told HockeyNewsNorth.com. “This is a great opportunity for him to continue to play hockey and to get an education at the same time.”
