Connor Sundquist of Selects Academy has committed to play college hockey at Colorado College. The Glastonbury, Conn. native is in his third season with the organization that operates out of the South Kent Prep School. In 11 games played this season he has six goals and nine assists, good for second on the Selects Academy 18U team, only behind Cornell commit Alex Limoges.
Sundquist, whose father Erik played college hockey at Providence and was part of the Friars' 1996 Hockey East Championship squad, is a strong skater who is solid on the puck. He's a rugged kid who has good vision and hockey IQ, but he also possesses a quick release.
Sundquist chose Colorado College over the University of New Hampshire and St. Lawrence, the two other schools in the mix. Sundquist was drafted in the 24th round by the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the 2014 USHL Draft. His QMJHL rights are owned by Baie-Comeau. It is expected that Sundquist will matriculate to play for Mike Haviland's Tigers for the 2016-17 season.
