And Gjurich's headed to Maine .. OJHL leading scorer commits to Maine for 13-14:
Quote:
The University of Maine Black Bears have picked up the Ontario Junior Hockey Leagues leading scorer Tyler Gjurich for next season.
Quote:
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, whos 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, hes one of the purest goal scorers Ive ever seen, said Peca. Hes liked very well by his teammates and hes a pretty driven guy, which can be misconstrued as standoffish, but its because hes 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.
