Madison Capitols forward Eugene Fadyeyev has committed to play college hockey at Ohio State University.
Fadyeyev has been with the Capitols since the 2014-15 season. The 5-foot-11, 171-pound native of Kiev, Ukraine, leads the team with eight assists and 10 points this season. During the 2015-16 season, Fadyeyev played in 28 games and tallied five goals and five assists.
“I’m happy to announce my commitment to Ohio State,” said Fadyeyev. “I just want to say thank you to all the coaches there, and that I’ve worked with that are supporting me, and I can’t wait to be a Buckeye.”
Prior to his time in the USHL, Fadyeyev played for Madison Capitols AAA (NAPHL) and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights (AYHL).
“I think it’s great that Eugene committed to Ohio State,” said Capitols head coach and general manager Garrett Suter. “He’s worked hard for the three years he’s been here, and has matured a lot. I think he’s a great kid; I have a little soft spot for him above the rest. I’m very excited for him and I wish him great success.”
Fadyeyev joins Capitols forwards Vincent De Mey and Kamil Sadlocha as Ohio State University commits.
With the announcement, Madison now has 13 Division 1 college commits on their roster.
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.
