Colorado College signs six, including two Minnesotans

Posted by: Roman Augustoviz under College hockey, Colorado College Updated: November 17, 2012 - 2:02 PM

Recruiting news keeps coming in. Minnesota State signs four, Bemidji State five ... and now Colorado College has announced six signings.

The Gophers? Nothing from the Mariucci office at Oak and 4th St., although who they were pursuing and had commitments from is widely known.

Back to CC. The newest list of  Tigers-to-be is made up of four forwards and two defensemen.

Two of the forwards are Daniel Labosky of Edina and Sam Rothstein of Minnetonka. The 5-7, 150 Labonsky plays for Benilde-St. Margaret's. Rothstein, 5-9, 165, plays for Sioux Falls of the UHSL.

Others who signed during the early week-long signing period which began Wednesday are forwards Zach Aman  of Johnstown, Pa., and Alex Roos  of Prairie Grove, Ill., and  and defensemen Garrett Cecere  of West Des Moines, Ia.  and Gustav Olofsson of Broomfield, Co.

Five of the six play in the USHL. Several will join April signees Christian Heil, Matt Hansen and Jaccob Slavin as freshmen next fall when CC makes its debut as a founding member of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference. The others will join  the Tigers for the 2014-15 season.

“We as a staff are very pleased with the talent and character of the players that recently signed to
become future Tigers,” coach Scott Owens said, according to a CC news release. “It’s an excellent mix of speed, skill and size, and all the players are currently contributing to their respective teams in a significant way."

Hansen, one of the early signees, is also a Minnesotan. He is from St. Cloud and is playing for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs of the British Columbia Hockey League.

The biggest recruit is Olofsson, 6-2, 189 and playing for Green Bay of the USHL.
