United States National Team Development Program goaltender Dylan St. Cyr pulled his commitment from the Michigan hockey team last week, according to a team source.
St. Cyr, 17, faced the Wolverines in November and notched 21 saves in that game. With the USNTDP this season, he has started 28 games and posted a 2.85 goals-against average clip. The netminder ranks 26th among draft-eligible goaltenders according to hockeyprospect.com.
Had he chosen to attend Michigan in the fall, St. Cyr likely would have had to battle current freshmen goaltenders Hayden Lavigne and Jack LaFontaine for the starting job. He announced his committment two years ago, on August 6, 2015.
St. Cyr’s departure leaves the Wolverines with six players left in its recruiting class for the 2018-2019 season.
