Forward Sahir Gill of the United States Hockey League’s Chicago Steel has committed to Boston University for the 2010-11 season, according to The Real Okanagan Hockey Academy Blog.
Gill, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound left-handed shot, currently ranks seventh in the USHL in scoring with six goals and 14 assists through 16 games. In 2008-09, the Terrace, British Columbia native recorded 18 goals and 21 assists in 54 games to help lead the Vernon Vipers of the British Columbia Hockey League to the Canadian Junior A championship.
“Committing to a team like Boston University is very exciting,” Gill told The Real Okanagan Hockey Academy Blog. “They have a great program there, and it was just the right fit for me. Playing in Hockey East is something I’m looking forward to, but my focus right now is on the Chicago Steel and working hard every game to help us have success.”
Gill joins an already impressive freshman class that includes forwards Yasin Cisse, Charlie Coyle and Matt Nieto and defenseman Adam Clendening.
