A left-shot forward, Silianoff is a gifted offensive talent. He had 36 goals and 33 assists in 65 games played last season. He's off to an even hotter start this year with 12 goals and 14 assists in 11 games.
An early '01, Silianoff is eligible for the USHL Phase I Futures Draft next May. He's eligible for the 2019 NHL Draft and is projected to arrive at Notre Dame for the start of the 2018-19 or 2019-20 season.
