Austin defenseman Davies makes NCAA DI commitment
October 10, 2018
The Austin Bruins of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that defenseman Dylan Davies has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in the ECAC.
Davies, a 4th round selection in the NAHL Draft this past summer, spent most of July competing with the United States National Development 17-team before joining his Bruins teammates in Austin. The 6’2/190 lbs. native of Traverse City, Michigan, was also named to the NHL Central Scouting Prospects to Watch report earlier in October.
“Everything about the school felt right,” said Davies. “The coaches, facilities, academics, the [hockey] program, and the tradition, all led me to choose [RPI]”
Located in Troy, NY, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) has a strong Division-I hockey program with a long list of successful alumni including NHL player/head coach Adam Oates and Kevin Constantine.
Davies added, “Now my focus is to keep on getting better in all areas and most importantly, do whatever it takes to help the Bruins win. We’ve had a great start and I hope to keep it going strong.”
Through six games with the Bruins, the 17-year-old defenseman has logged one assist and stands tall with a +3 in plus/minus.
