Thayer Academy forward Adam Gaudette will be joining prep school teammates Lincoln Griffin and Jon Barry at Northeastern University, the player announced via twitter on Tuesday afternoon.
The '96 from Braintree, Mass. was one of the top uncommitted forwards left in the region. He participated in this past weekend's Cedar Rapids RoughRiders camp and will likely take his game to the USHL in the fall if he makes the roster, according to Scott Herbst.
Gaudette and Griffin combined to be the top scoring duo in prep school hockey this past winter. Gaudette has the ability to be a finisher as well as a setup guy. It will be interesting to see if the pair are reunited on a line once they both arrive on St. Botolph St.
Gaudette, a product of Tim Lovell's Boston Advantage program, played for former NHLer and BU alum Tony Amonte at Thayer. A six-foot right shot center, Gaudette has good upside and is a nice pickup for Northeastern's coaching staff. Assistants Jerry Keefe and Patrick Foley have been gaining some steam on the recruiting trail of late.
