Desi Burgart commits to Quinnipiac

Quinnipiac picked up its second commitment of the night on Monday. Less than an hour after the verbal commitment of Jack Silich, the Bobcats tapped back into Western Canada with the commitment of 1998 center Desi Burgart of the Surrey Eagles in the British Columbia Hockey League. Burgart is off to a good start for Surrey with 31 points (14 goal, 17 assists) in 32 games played. He is third on the team in scoring but of players eligible to play NCAA hockey he effectively leads the team in scoring as the top two players are major junior veterans. Five of Burgart's 14 goals have come by way of the power play. A year ago for Surrey he had 45 points (19 goals, 26 assists) in 52 regular season games. A year ago he was also a member of the Canada West team at the 2016-17 World Junior A Challenge. At 6'1 180 pounds, Burgart a native of North Vancouver, B.C. will give Quinnipiac some size and depth down the middle.

Very excited to announce my commitment to play Division 1 college hockey at Quinnipiac University. Thank you to my family, friends, teammates and the for all the support.

Burgart is coming in for the 2018-2019 season especially with the Bobcats needing center depth for next season. Congrats to Desi and his family on this great accomplishment and welcome to Bobcat Nation.
