Rumors swirled in the hockey world last week that Miami commit and first round pick of the Winnipeg Jets Jack Roslovic was considering backing out on his commitment to the RedHawks to potentially play for the Flint Firebirds of the Ontario Hockey League.
But as Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports, Roslovic will be holding firm in his commitment, despite a heavy press from the Firebirds organization:
Put to rest any thought that Columbus' Jake Roslovic is wavering on his commitment to @MiamiOH_Hockey. He has declined offer from OHL Flint.— Aaron Portzline (@Aportzline) July 14, 2015
Told Roslovic made his decision final late last week. No. 25 overall pick by #nhljets will follow through on plans to attend Miami U.— Aaron Portzline (@Aportzline) July 14, 2015
Roslovic finished fourth on last year's NTDP U18 in scoring with a 27-53-80 scoring line in 65 games played. The Jets selected Roslovic with the 25th overall pick in last month's NHL Entry Draft.
Roslovic keeping to his commitment is a big win for the RedHawks, who are looking to replace their top three leading scorers from last year's team after the graduations of Austin Czarnik and Blake Coleman and Riley Barber signing with the Washington Capitals.
