Proud to announce my commitment to play division 1 college hockey at Quinnipiac University. Thank you to my friends, teammates, coaches, and most importantly to my family for supporting me along the way! #gobobcats— David Hymovitch (@davidhymovitch) September 19, 2019
Hymovitch was drafted in the 7th round, 97th overall in the 2019 USHL Futures Draft by the Sioux City Musketeers. In 2018 he was selected in the 4th round of the WHL Bantam Draft by the Calgary Hitmen. The scouting service Neutral Zone is high on Hymovitch as a 4 star prospect. They describe him as someone who is effective in all situations, blocks shots and has great hockey sense. These are all traits that head coach Rand Pecknold looks for in a player they want to play for the program. Quinnipiac's last high end player they had from Arizona was Jeremy Langlois who was part of the 2013 Frozen Four team.4⭐️ David Hymovitch to Quinnipiac. Effective in all situations. His edges are superb, he blocks shots, and he has great sense. The 2003 clearly knows the game; a hockey player. Can create and score multiple ways. High ceiling for the AZ native. https://t.co/us501h6W6R https://t.co/PNhRDQ6zdF— Neutral Zone (@_Neutral_Zone) September 19, 2019
He becomes the fourth 2003 forward for the Bobcats which is starting to look like a strong forward class with Jack Silich, Matthew McGroarty, Sam Lipkin and now Hymovitch all verbally committed to Quinnipiac. He is expected to be part of the 2022-2023 recruiting depending on how he develops.
