Having a Seat Over There: Phil Di Giuseppe

Bob Miller mentioned him as a name to watch in the future, and Phil Di Giuseppe has in fact committed to Michigan to join the team in 2011. He currently plays for the Villanova Knights in the OJHL, the same league that produced Cogliano and Burlon, amongst many others.

Di Giuseppe currently has 15-30--45 in 36 games, to rank third on the Knights in scoring. He is three years younger than the players ahead of him in points, however. Last year he ranked fifth on the team in scoring with a 16-31--47 line in 56 games. He had a goal and three assists in six playoff games.

He's listed as 6'1", 200 lbs.

The Knights Associate General Manager called him "very offensively gifted" with "second to none" speed and stick skills. Sounds like a perfect fit for our team.

His Knights are tied for first place in their division with 45 points in 37 games. Di Giuseppe is tied for 35th in league scoring, but he is the leading scorer amongst 93s, and he is a late 93. He's 22nd in the league in assists.

This sounds like a really, really nice get for Michigan.
