University of New Hampshire head coach Dick Umile scored a big recruiting victory on Wednesday with the commitment of Marcus Vela. The Burnaby, BC native is a good-sized forward that projects as a legitimate scoring threat in college. In addition to playing for the Langley Rivermen in the BCHL, he was named to the Canada Pacific U17 Select Team. A '97, Vela is slated to arrive in Durham for the fall of 2015 or 2016.
