Dubuque Fighting Saints forward Scott Corbett has announced his commitment to suit up for the Miami University, beginning with the 2018–19 season. Corbett, in two seasons with the Saints, scored 8 goals and 23 assists in 81 games, and will look to make an immediate impact on the RedHawks.
“I am extremely happy for my opportunity at Miami. I have heard nothing but great things about the school and program,” Corbett said. “With it being so close to home, Miami has been a school I have dreamed about playing at from a young age.”
The Indiana native, and veteran of 186 junior hockey games, was originally acquired from the Coulee Region Chill on January 14, 2017. He proved to be a key cog on the 2016–17 club that made it to the Eastern Conference Final against the eventual Clark Cup champions, and a critical part of a line with Quinn Preston and Chayse Primeau. Corbett routinely played in all situations, including key minutes at even strength, on the power play and on the penalty kill.
“Dubuque has made me the person and player I am today. It is a special place, and I will always be a Saint for life,” Corbett said. “I owe thanks to all of the people who have helped me along the way, from the coaching staffs, my billet families, teammates, fans, and everyone involved in Dubuque’s program. I wouldn’t trade my time in Dubuque for anything, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without it.”
“Scott is deserving of this opportunity. He was a major contributor to our team last season, from helping build our culture, to competing in training and games, he proved his worth consistently,” said Fighting Saints head coach Oliver David. “We are excited for him to take his skills to school and make an immediate impact at Miami.
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrated its 16th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2017-18. The USHL had a record 45 players selected at the 2018 NHL Draft, more than any junior league in the world, 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.
