Waterloo Black Hawks goaltender Robbie Beydoun announced his commitment on Monday to Michigan Tech following his junior hockey career.
“Robbie’s experience has helped him to quickly build a rapport with our defensemen,” Waterloo head coach P.K. O’Handley said. “His ability and willingness to play the puck helps them, and the entire team has been lifted by what he has done early this year.”
The 20-year-old is in his first season with Waterloo and has been exceptional. He has twice been named the CCM/USHL Goaltender of the Week and is 5-3-1-0 with three shutouts in just 10 appearances. His 1.64 GAA ranks second in the USHL while his .939 SV% is the third best in the League.
Prior to his time with the Black Hawks, Beydoun was a netminder for the Fargo Force (USHL), Michigan Warriors (NAHL) and Compuware (HPHL).
16 players on the Waterloo roster are now committed to Division 1 schools.
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 15th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2016-17. 30 or more players from the USHL have been selected in four consecutive NHL Drafts, and more than 400 players on team rosters last season committed to NCAA Division I schools, further establishing the USHL as the world’s foremost producer of junior hockey talent.
