Jack DeBoer has landed a scholarship offer to play college hockey at Boston University. The 2000-born son of San Jose Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer will be an incoming sophomore forward for Andrew Will at the Salisbury School.
DeBoer is a right-shot forward with good size who skates a little awkwardly now, but projects well. He was around the puck a lot and made things happen at this past July's USA Hockey Select 15 Festival held at the Northtown Center in Amherst, NY.
DeBoer, who played for the New Jersey Colonials last season, had a goal and four assists at the Select 15 Festival. A player his age typically wouldn't get much ice time in prep hockey, but the Knights lost quite a bit of firepower so he could see some significant minutes for the three-time defending prep champion.
