Adam Erne, a 16-year-old forward, has decommitted from Boston University in favor of the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, according to hockeyjournal.com The news comes just over a year after Erne originally said he would come to BU in the fall of 2013.
The North Branford, Conn. native previously claimed
BU is a school he always wanted to play for, but after being drafted in the second round (22nd overall) of the QMJHL’s draft and having his rights traded to Quebec, he changed his tune.
He racked up
10 goals, 8 assists and a minus-18 rating in 45 games this past season for the Indiana Ice of the United States Hockey League.
Erne is the second player this summer to decommit from BU, following in the footsteps of defenseman Anthony DeAngelo, who in July decided to join the Ontario Hockey League’s Sarnia Sting.
