The Quinnipac Bobcats remain hot on the ice and hot on the recruiting trail. The Bobcats picked up a verbal commitment from former University of Wisconsin commit and current Langley Rivermen forward Ethan Leyh. The left shot 6'0, 187 pound Leyh is a native of Port Moody, British Columbia, Canada. Leyh has played for Langley for the past one and a half seasons. Originally he committed to the Wisconsin Badgers back in November of 2016.
4.25 prospect Ethan Leyh commits to Quinnipiac. A graceful skater with smooth hands, speed and creativity. Unafraid in the corners, can undress defenders in small areas and can score. He’ll enroll this fall; former Wisconsin commit. @LangleyRivermen
