Keenan Suthers Commits to Western Michigan

Matt Christians

1998-born NTDP forward Keenan Suthers announced via Twitter on Wednesday night that he has verbally committed to play at Western MIchigan:

Suthers is a huge forward--listed at 6'5"--and has shown intriguing offensive capabilities. He was a later addition to this year's NTDP U17 team after a dominating performance at the USA Hockey Select 16 Festival. Jeff Cox ranked Suthers as the 6th best forward at the camp. Here was his write-up on Suthers:

6. Keenan Suthers (#8 Kelly) 6-5/180 Compuware U16 - The Tecumseh, Ontario native who has dual citizenship crosses the border to play midget hockey with the intent on going the NCAA route, according to a source at the festival. He's a huge, hulking forward who can take over a game with his ability to drive the net and bowl through traffic. He also has good skill and speed for a player of his size. He was a scoring machine at the tournament.

After the Select camp, Suthers was selected to play for the USA Hockey Select 17 team, which went on to win a silver medal at the Five Nations tournament in Germany.
