|Anthony Cipollone is one of two commits this month for Quinnipiac
The Quinnipiac Bobcats picked two commitments in the month of December as earlier this month as Bonnyville Pontiacs (AJHL) forward Alex Power committed to the program. Power is a 6'1, 185 pound left shot forward who hails from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada which is the easternmost city in Canada. In his first full season after playing 15 games a season ago, Power has 29 points in 30 games for the Pontiacs. This is the first commit for Quinnipiac from Newfoundland and Labrador which is not considered a huge hockey hot bed in Canada. Power is also the Bonnyville Pontiac first Quinnipiac commit since Jean-Marc Beaudoin who captained the Bobcats back in the 2009-2010 season.
Quinnipiac's second commitment has a last name that Bobcats fans should all well and know. Just three days before Christmas, Anthony Cipollone the younger brother of current Bobcat Joey Cipollone committed to the program. The younger Cipollone is a 5'6, 165 left shot forward from Purchase, New York. In his second season with the Brooks Bandits (AJHL), Cipollone has 32 points (10 goals, 22 assists) in 34 games played. Prior to playing for Brooks he played at the Loomis Chaffee School along with the Yale Jr. Bulldogs Hockey Program.
