Lake Placid, NY, United States (4E Sports) – The top prospect for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Frank “Sonny” Milano, confirmed Monday he will be going to Boston College.
The 16th pick of the 2014 NHL Draft, assessed available paths, before choosing to play college hockey.
“I was on campus two weeks ago for orientation. I keep in touch with all the [hockey] staff,” he added.
Milano said, “It’s one of the better colleges in history, Jerry York is a great coach, he knows what he’s doing. It’s the best way to get to the NHL.”
The forward also stated he will have a lot of time to workout since he will play fewer games.
The 6’0″, 183 pound-forward will look to add physical size and enhance his offensive skills while playing for Boston College.
The 18-year-old had been representing the U.S. in international competition and won a number of medals with the country.
Milano will likely arrive in the NHL in the 2016-2017 season, according to hockey analysts.
