Won’t be hard for Zach Aughe to adjust to a college scheme, at least.
The Clarkston native and Victory Honda forward has announced his verbal commitment to the University of Maine.
“I’m very excited to have the opportunity to play Division 1 hockey at Maine,” Aughe told MiHockey. “It’s been a life-long dream of mine to play Division 1 hockey.”
Aughe, a 2000 birth-year forward, has spent the last two seasons with the Victory Honda 18U program. Before that, he played on the Oakland Jr. Grizzlies 13U, 14U, 15-Only and 16U teams.
Elite Prospects says he has 22 points in 23 games this season, along with 54 penalty minutes.
He said he can’t wait to get out to Orono and start competing for the Black Bears.
“I choose Maine because of their great facilities and great coaching staff,” Aughe said. “The atmosphere there is amazing and it just felt like home.”
