Waterloo Black Hawks forward Alex Limoges has announced his commitment to Penn State University.
Limoges joined the Black Hawks in early February after starting the season with the Tri-City Storm, where he was a member of their 2016 Clark Cup championship team. In just 11 games for Waterloo, the 19-year-old has amassed 16 points (5G, 11A). He has also recorded three points or more three times, including in Saturday’s 6-1 win over the Sioux City Musketeers. That night, Limoges had two goals and an assist, and he was subsequently named the CCM/USHL Co-Forward of the Week by the United States Hockey League on Monday.
“Alex is a quality player and a quality person,” said Black Hawks head coach P.K. O’Handley. “He has fit in really well and added a lot to the team in a very short time.”
In his time with Tri-City and Waterloo, Limoges has 47 points (18G, 29A) in 47 games to go along with a +12 rating. During Tri-City's run to the Clark Cup last season, Limoges tallied 14 points in 11 games and scored the game-winning goal in three of Tri-City’s nine victories.
Limoges is a native of Winchester, Virginia and previously played for Selects Academy (USPHL) and the Washington Little Caps (AYHL). He becomes the 20th player on Waterloo's roster to commit to a Division I school.
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.
