Northfield Mount Hermon power forward Benjamin Freeman has committed to first year head coach Mike Cavanaugh at the University of Connecticut. The Falmouth, Maine native is six-feet-four and has a physical presence on the ice. He tallied 12 goals and 8 assists last season in prep school action. The Gatineau Olympiques picked up Freeman in the 12th round of the 2013 QMJHL Draft.
