Quinnipiac has picked up a verbal commitment from their first 2003 born player. Chicago Mission bantam forward Jack Silich has gave the Bobcats a verbal commitment tonight.
Proud&honored to announce my commitment to play Div 1 college hockey for Quinnipiac University. I want to say thank you to my coaches who believe in my hockey ability. I also want to thank my parents and my brother @ssilich6 who encourage me to be better player #GoBobcats
‘03 Chicago Mission forward Jack Silich commits to Quinnipiac. Big right shot played physical game both ways and drove the net at USHL Fall Classic.
According to scout Jeff Cox, the 5'8 154 pound Silich plays a heavy game. Check out Jeff's write-up on him at the 2017 USHL 14U Fall Classic. On the season in 42 games played he has 60 points (24 goals, 36 assists). Within those 42 games are 10 HPHL games where he has 6 points (4 goals, 2 assists). The Mission are one of the elite programs in the mid-west and not a program that Quinnipiac in the past has really tapped into so this looks like a positive development that they are looking to tap into a Chicago market rich on talent.
Silich is projected to arrive in Hamden for the 2021-2022 season but could also be for the 2022-2023 campaign. Congrats to Jack and his family and welcome to BobcatNation.
