A pair of ECAC recruits have opted against the Ivy League in favor of signing contracts in the Canadian Hockey League.
On Thursday, Shattuck-St. Mary's goaltender Frederic Foulem, who had previously been committed to Harvard, announced that he will play next season for the Shawinigan Cataractes of the QMJHL. Foulem is eligible for the upcoming NHL Draft, and was ranked 23rd among North American goalies in Central Scouting's Mid-Term rankings before being unranked in the final rankings.
Also opting for Canada was Yale commit defenseman Cameron Dineen, who signed with the North Bay Battalion.. Dineen played for the New Jersey Rockets of the Eastern Hockey League. He also played three games this past season for the Tri-City Storm of the USHL, who selected Dineen with the third overall pick in the 2014 USHL Futures Draft.
Dineen is the second talented defenseman Yale has lost this week after John Marino switched his commitment to Harvard.
