Milano switches commitment to Boston College

Forward Sonny Milano, who stars for the United States National Team Development Program Under-18 team, has withdrawn his commitment to the University of Notre Dame and instead has committed to Boston College starting next season.

Milano has 10 goals and 21 assists in 19 games this season, and is one of three players from the United States Hockey League to earn an A rating on NHL Central Scouting's November players to watch list.

"He probably has as much skill and puck skills as anyone I've coached in 15 years," USNTDP U-18 coach Danton Cole said of Milano. "He does some amazing things with the puck."

"He's so dynamic, very good with the puck in traffic and in open ice and can make defensemen look silly," Central Scouting's David Gregory told NHL.com. "He enjoys chirping at other players too. He likes to get under your skin. He'll allow the play to come to him, take a hit and chirp it up before heading on a 2-on-1 in the opposite direction resulting in a goal … I've seen it happen. He certainly has the potential of becoming a complete player."

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
