Dylan Malmquist, a 5-foot-10, 180 pound junior-forward for Edina High School in Minnesota, decided earlier today to play his college hockey in a Notre Dame sweater.

Malmquist was thought to be one of the nation's top uncommitted college hockey prospects; yet another great grab for head coach Jeff Jackson of Notre Dame, but not his first catch from Edina.
Edina has gifted Notre Dame with quite a few of the most talented Hornets, including Anders Lee, who is now with the NHL's New York Islanders, Steven Fogarty and Ben Ostlie, who are currently with the team, and Connor Hurley, who will join the team this year, and led the Hornets in scoring last season. It seems as though the pipeline from Edina to Notre Dame is only expanding from year to year.
Malmquist scored 23 goals and had 23 assists for 46 points last year. Currently playing for Team Southwest in the Upper Midwest Elite Hockey League, Malmquist has tallied 3 points in the last two weekends. The Hornet Junior was selected by the Muskegon Lumberjacks, 10th overall in the 2012 USHL Futures Draft.
