Boston College has picked up a commitment from one of the best power forwards to come out of New England prep school hockey in a long time. According to his twitter, Nobles forward Miles Wood has committed to play for the Eagles.

Wood, a fourth round pick of the New Jersey Devils in the 2014 NHL Draft, had originally committed to Brown University before de-commuting from the Ivy League school last month.

He is the son of Randy Wood who played in the NHL with the New York Islanders, Buffalo Sabres, Toronto Maple Leafs and Dallas Stars. His brother Tyler is a freshman at Brown where he has played in 28 games this season for the Bears.

This is a huge commitment for Boston College head coach Jerry York, the legendary bench boss of the Eagles who has become used to seeing high profile players come his way.
