Merrimack College hockey coach Mark Dennehy received commitments from Amarillo Bulls goaltender Collin Delia and Boston Bandits forward Tyler Drevitch over the past few days.
Delia, a Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. native, is playing in his second season for the Amarillo Bulls in the North American Hockey League (NAHL). The Bulls won the NAHL Championship last season, and Delia is off to a hot start this season. He was named the NAHL Goaltender of the Month for October with a sub-one goals against average. The '94 will arrive on campus next fall to fill the roster spot voided by the graduation of Sam Marotta.
Drevitch is the son of former UMass-Lowell and Maine defenseman Scott Drevitch. The elder Drevitch transferred to UMass-Lowell after his freshman season in Orono. He finished his collegiate career at UML in 1988 with 11 goals and 61 assists for his career.
Tyler Drevitch plays for the Boston Bandits in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL). The Middleboro, Mass. native is third on his team in scoring with nine goals and seven assists in 16 games played. The '95 will arrive in North Andover for the 2016 season. His younger brother Logan, a '98, is widely thought to be one of the elite scoring forwards in his age group.
