Lakeville North HS senior-to-be defenseman Jack Sadek announced via Twitter on Tuesday evening that he has committed to Minnesota:
Proud and excited to announce my commitment to play college hockey at University of Minnesota #GoGophs— Jack Sadek (@JackSadek16) August 13, 2014
It's not a huge shock to see Sadek commit to the Gophers after showing off his skills in front of the Minnesota coaching staff at the recent Minnesota Hockey Model Camp at Mariucci Arena. Here's what we wrote about Sadek in our Model Camp report:
Jack Sadek, '97, Lakeville North- For my money, Sadek was the best player at the camp, though as a '97 he was also towards the older end of players there. Sadek didn't really stand out to me during the high school season, and didn't go through the High Performance camps this spring, but he did make the NHL Central Scouting preliminary watch list for next year's draft, and definitely looked like he'll be in the conversation for next season. Listed at 6'1", he's got decent size, moves very fluidly and has heavy shot from the point with a smooth quick release. He really controlled the game when he was on the ice.
Sadek is expected to return to Lakeville North for his senior season. He's eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft, and was given a 'C' rating by NHL Central Scouting in their preliminary 2015 rankings.
