Maine forward Gaulin makes NCAA DI commitment
The Maine Nordiques of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Tyler Gaulin has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for Mercyhurst University in Atlantic Hockey.
Gaulin, 20, is in his second full season playing in the NAHL for the Nordiques. The 6’0/178 lbs. native of Kingston, NH, is currently leading the Nordiques in scoring thus far during the 2021-22 season with 21 points (6 goals, 15 assists) in 26 games played.
“Proud to announce my commitment to play D1 college hockey and further my education at Mercyhurst University! Thanks to all my friends, family, teammates, and coaches who have helped me get to where I am today,” said Gaulin.
Gaulin recorded 35 points in 55 games played during his rookie season in 2020-21. He made his NAHL debut with the Nordiques on March 5, 2020, appearing in two games during the 2019-20 season.
“We are all incredibly proud of Tyler and the work that he continues to put into the team and his game. Tyler has been a resounding positive energy in our culture from his first time putting on a Nordiques uniform. Tyler has always helped our club produce offense, as he is currently our leading scorer. More importantly, he has grown into a leader in the room and a staple in the Nordiques community,” said Nordiques head coach Matt Pinchevsky. “Tyler is a loyal student-athlete and person who makes his teammates happy to be at the rink with him; we know he will bring those qualities to Coach Gotkin’s program and we are very thankful for the work that his staff puts in to commit to their Lakers. We are very proud of Tyler and happy for the Gaulin Family on his commitment to Mercyhurst.”
Prior to playing in the NAHL, Gaulin played for Berwick Academy, the GBL Bruins, and Seacoast Spartans.
