CJHL Player of the Year Considering Michigan for Next Year

The busy news day for Michigan hockey continues.
With Caporusso, Hagelin, Rust, and Scooter leaving, offense is a concern for the Wolverines heading into next season. While the incoming recruiting class has some solid players, more help may be on the way.
The Hamilton Morning News (HT: Chris Dilks) reports that Princeton recruit and Canadian Junior Hockey League Player of the Year Zach Hyman has reopened his recruitment after Princeton Coach Guy Gadowsky took the Penn State job. Hyman mentioned that he'll be touring Boston University, Boston College, Minnesota-Duluth, and, yes, Michigan in the coming weeks.
Hyman had 42-60--102 this season for the Hamilton Red Wings team that he captained. For his career, he had 90-124--214.
He cited a desire to go to a school that combined a strong hockey program with a strong academic program.
Hyman was a 5th round draft pick of the Florida Panthers last season. It's a big deal to win CJHL Player of the Year. Past winners include Dany Heatley, Mike Comrie, and Paul Kariya.
