By @MichaelCaples –
Cameron Babiak will be moving a little closer to home for the next stage of his hockey career.
Currently a defenseman for the NAHL’s Brooking Blizzard in South Dakota, Babiak – a Saline native – has announced his commitment to Bowling Green.
“I picked BG because I loved the coaching staff, and I felt like it would be a really good fit for me and my development both as a hockey player and a student in the classroom,” Babiak said. “Also both of my parents went there, and my mom was on the BGSU tennis team, so Bowling Green has an extremely special place in my heart.”
The lifelong Falcons fan brings two and a half years of junior experience to the BGSU blue line. After playing youth hockey for Belle Tire and Honeybaked, Babiak split the 2016-17 campaign between the Victory Honda 18U team and Brookings, before joining the Blizzard full time for 2017-18 and this season.
In 2018-19, the 1999 birth-year blueliner has recorded 11 points and 71 penalty minutes in 46 games.
Babiak skated in the 2019 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, as well, competing for the Central Division.
