UConn Hockey Earns Commitment from Star Defenseman Philip Nyberg


The defenseman will be heading to Storrs after flipping his commitment from Wisconsin. According to SB Nation's Jeff Cox via Twitter, "He's a very good defensive defenseman with size," and a "major coup for Mike Cavanaugh and his staff."

Nyberg is a fifth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft by the Buffalo Sabres.
