Simpson to UND

New, comments

Alberta defenseman Dillon Simpson, arguably the top '93-born college prospect, has committed to North Dakota. He chose the Sioux over a couple of WCHA programs and his dad's alma mater of Michigan State.

Most interesting is the news that Simpson has accelerated his education and could potentially play for the Sioux next season, rather than spending another year in the AJHL. Coming to college next year maybe wouldn't be the worst move for him, since he's having a great year in the AJHL this year, and another year in the league might not do much for him, but North Dakota would be a tough place to make the lineup as a 17-year-old.
