Team USA goaltender Blake Weyrick has committed to play collegiate hockey at Brown University following his USHL career.
Weyrick has won two of his three starts in the USHL this season for the Under-18 squad, including his first shutout in the League during an 8-0 win over the Chicago Steel on September 29th. He has compiled a 1.63 GAA and .943 SV% in four appearances in USHL contests. The Ojai, California native first played in the League last season with Team USA’s Under-17 squad and posted a 2-5-1 record. Weyrick, who turns 18 next month, is also getting attention from the NHL as he was ranked #3 among North American goaltenders in the recently released midterm rankings by NHL Central Scouting in advance of the 2014 NHL Draft.
Three other current USHL players are committed to Brown University, including Waterloo Black Hawks teammates Dane Cooper and Tim Lappin, as well as Tommy Parran of the Youngstown Phantoms.
An Ivy League school, Brown University is a member of the ECAC and has seven USHL alumni on the roster this season; Mark Naclerio (Waterloo Black Hawks), Nick Lappin (Tri-City/Cedar Rapids), Matt Wahl (Omaha Lancers), Ryan Jacobson (Sioux Falls Stampede), Davey Middleton (Cedar Rapids/Tri-City), Alexi Rossi (Waterloo Black Hawks), and Kyle Quick (Lincoln Stars).
