Congratulations to Nick Magyar of Mentor Ohio, on his NCAA division one commitment to the Ohio State University.
Nick is slated to join the buckeye's in 2014. Nick has had a great year of hockey playing for the Cleveland Barron's96 team. Nick also skated with team USA at the youth Olympic games in Austria this year, and has been a regular leader and has consistently been top competitor. It is expected that Nick will be playing in the USHL next year and may well follow in Kevin Irwin's footsteps to the NTDP in Ann Arbor, we will know in May around the USHL draft the exact story here. NIck is also eligible for the OHL draft this year and could make a legitimate run to the NHL on that route, but the NCAA is the one I would much rather see him take. You know especially since he would be keeping an Ohio thing.
What is the scouting world saying about Nick?
"Big and skilled center with excellent hands and playmaking ability."
"Is poised and deceptive with good playmaking abilities."
"A high caliber NHL prospect"
" Has the skill and patience to create time and space for his teammates to get open and he shows the finesse and vision to thread the needle."
