Nick Granowicz’s hockey journey has taken him quite a ways away from Michigan, but soon, he’ll be back in the Great Lakes State.
The Macomb native has announced his commitment to the University of Michigan, giving a verbal pledge to Mel Pearson’s coaching staff in Ann Arbor.
“As a young player growing up, my father would always take us down to Joe Louis Arena to watch the GLI college games and I always dreamed of playing for the Wolverines,” Granowicz told MiHockey.
The ’98 birth-year forward is currently playing for the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders of the USHL; he has spent the last year and a half with the Topeka RoadRunners of the NAHL.
Since his call-up to the RoughRiders, he has recorded three goals in 11 games.
The Belle Tire, Detroit Falcons and Oakland Junior Grizzlies alum said he’s looking forward to joining the Wolverines hockey family.
“The amazing coaching staff, history of the hockey program, and excellent academics are second to none,” Granowicz said. “When I visited the campus in Ann Arbor it went so well and I truly felt like it is home for me.
“It’s a true honor to represent the Maize and Blue and I couldn’t be more excited. This is a real dream come true!”
