Swedish defenseman Hugo Blixt announces commitment to BU

Swedish defenseman Hugo Blixt announced his commitment to the Boston University men’s hockey team early Monday night. The 6-foot-3-inch, 194 pound player will join other recruits in the incoming class of 2018-19.

Blixt is currently playing for the Tri-City Storm of the USHL. The Vasteras native has notched three goals and nine assists over 19 games so far, and is currently tied for third most points on the team.

The 19 year old played with the VIK Vasteras HK team for three seasons before traveling across the Atlantic for the first time to play hockey.

“Boston has a tremendous team, great coaching staff, and I liked it right away,” Blixt said in a Tri-City Storm statement. “I felt that this was the best fit for me in my college career.”
