And Gjurich's headed to Maine ..
OJHL leading scorer commits to Maine for ’13-’14
The University of Maine Black Bears have picked up the Ontario Junior Hockey League’s leading scorer Tyler Gjurich for next season.
Buffalo Jr. Sabres General Manager and Head Coach Michael Peca had some high praise Gjurich, who is the second player in the history of the Buffalo Jr. Sabres organization to score 50 or more goals in a single season. The other was Brian Gionta, who’s currently with the Montreal Canadians and played at Boston College. He had 57 goals in 1996-97 when the organization was named the Niagara Scenics.
“All my years of hockey, he’s one of the purest goal scorers I’ve ever seen,” said Peca. “He’s liked very well by his teammates and he’s a pretty driven guy, which can be misconstrued as standoffish, but it’s because he’s so focused on everything he does.”
As an aside, the latest classes from Nichols are sending a few kids to the USNTDP and/or college ranks as well .. Sean Malone (USNTDP; Harvard), Carson Gicewicz (U.S. National U17 Team 2013 camp invite; St. Lawrence), Michael Ederer (St. Lawrence), RJ Gicewicz (U.S. National U17 Team at 2011 Five Nations; St. Lawrence). Also, Maksymum and Rochester Stars alum Dylan Shapiro is headed to UMass-Lowell.
