The Quinnipiac Bobcats men's ice hockey team picked up its first 2005 born commitment when forward Christopher Pelosi verbally committed on August 2nd. This is the Bobcats first commitment since the commitment period opened on August 1st for all high school incoming juniors. A flood of talent committed on August 1st to the usual big programs but the Bobcats got in on the action on day two with the Washington Township, New Jersey native committing to Quinnipiac.
The @QU_MIH get a really big commitment here from 4.5 ⭐️ recruit Chris Pelosi from the @Mountboyshockey program. He has taken huge strides this season and was arguably the best power forward at USA Nationals earlier this year. He's our 22nd ranked 2005 American. pic.twitter.com/5bSzQIpFAk— Puck Preps (@PuckPreps) August 2, 2021

Pelosi is a 6'2, 187 pound left shot forward who spent the past season with the Mount St. Charles 15U AAA program in Rhode Island. In 29 games during a COVID plagued season he had 20 goals and 15 assists. Pelosi was selected by the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the 6th round with the 87th overall pick in the 2021 USHL Futures Draft. He will likely play another season of midget hockey before a potential USHL career followed by his arrival in Hamden at an unknown date.
