USA Hockey recap

We've updated Wednesday report on Dylan Peterson's commitment to BU for 202 with new information, including Canada International Hockey Academy’s announcement and Coach Travis Rycroft's assessment of his leading scorer:

“Dylan Peterson truly is a special kid. Dylan’s on-ice ability is without question incredible, however, couple that with his off-ice dedication and maturation level is something I personally have never observed from a 14-year-old before. To have the intestinal fortitude Dylan has at the age of 14 to continue to better himself both on and off the ice is very difficult to teach, so to have that naturally built within himself is such an important ingredient to not only succeed as a hockey player but also in life."
