More information on BU’s newest recruit, Doyle Somerby (photo) of Kimball Union Academy, where he is on a defensive pairing with Alex Carle, brother of NHLer Matt Carle. His coach, Mike Levine says the 6’5” blueliner “is a good skater who has good stick skill and has a great understanding of the game.”
Prior to KUA, he played for St. Mary’s in Lynn, Mass. Like fellow 2013 recruits Sam Kurker and Matt Grzelcyk, Somerby also skated for the New England Nordiques tournament team and played in last summer’s Senior Chowder Cup, he. Last Friday, after committing to BU, Somerby tweeted: “best day of my life.”
