Tigers sign six to letters of intent

From CC sports information …

Colorado College has received signed letters of intent from six hockey players who will enroll at and play for CC in the future, head coach Scott Owens announced today.

The newest list of Tigers-to-be includes four forwards and two defensemen. Several will join previous signees Christian Heil, Matt Hansen and Jaccob Slavin as freshmen next fall when CC makes its debut as a founding member of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference. The others will arrive in time for the 2014-15 season.

The group is comprised of forwards Zach Aman (Johnstown, PA), Daniel Labosky (Edina, MN), Alex Roos (Prairie Grove, IL) and Sam Rothstein (Minnetonka, MN), along with blue-line specialists Garrett Cecere (West Des Moines, IA) and Gustav Olofsson (Broomfield, CO).

Five of the six come to Colorado College from the United States Hockey League as Aman currently plays at the Tier I Junior A level for the Indiana Ice, Cecere for the Tri-City Storm, Olofsson for the Green Bay Gamblers, Roos for the Chicago Steel and Rothstein for the Sioux Falls Stampede. Labosky skates for Benilde St. Margaret’s High School in St. Louis Park, Minn.

Monday reading: NCHC commish, TV, polls, commit, J. Schwartz

Sorry for the delay. My third day working for CC sports information kept me from posting this until now.

The National Collegiate Hockey Conference will announce its first commissioner, likely former USOC head Jim Scherr, at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Penrose House in Colorado Springs.

The Grand Forks Herald reports the NCHCs TV deal — a 16-game package with CBS College Sports — will be announced soon. I’m guessing it will be released on Wednesday as part of the commissioner announcement.

Colorado College stayed at No. 6 in the USCHO poll, but fell from No. 5 to No. 8 in the USA Hockey rankings.

The Tigers have a commit from a talented Minnesota high school wing, Daniel Labosky, for 2014-15. Click on the link for more details from Gazette beat writer Brian Gomez.

Nothing official yet, but it is likely CC sophomore Jaden Schwartz will return to action for the Tigers this Saturday against Cornell after traveling to Colorado Springs on Friday. The WJC gold medal game is Thursday night in Alberta.
