Janesville(NAHL) '98 goalie Jack LaFontaine announced via Twitter that he has verbally committed to Michigan
Proud to announce my commitment to the University of Michigan! Thank you to friends, family and coaches for the help along the way! #GoBlue— Jack LaFontaine (@jack_lafontaine) December 15, 2015
LaFontaine is a native of Ontario that moved to the US this season to help secure an NCAA scholarship. LaFontaine has been stellar for the Janesville Jets this season. He's second in the NAHL with a 1.77 goals against average and fifth in the league with a .927 save percentage.
I wrote this scouting report on LaFontaine after this past September's NAHL Showcase:
LaFontaine would likely join the Wolverines next season in an obvious position of need for the Wolverines, who have struggled defensively in recent seasons.
