UConn men’s hockey’s 2021-22 roster is nearing completion. On Saturday, the Huskies picked up a commitment from Sasha Teleguine, a lefty forward born in 2002. He’ll come to Storrs this fall and is expected to be the final forward UConn adds for the upcoming season.
Teleguine was born in the United States and hails from North Attleboro, Massachusetts. Listed at 5-10, 185 pounds, Teleguine was described as a dangerous player with size, speed, and skills by a well-placed source.
He most recently played with the Chilliwack Chiefs in the BCHL, where he racked up four goals and 14 assists in 20 games. Teleguine’s 18 points were third-most on the team and he was unanimously selected as the Chiefs’ top rookie.
The NHL Central Scouting Final Rankings have Teleguine pegged as the 134th overall skater eligible for the 2021 NHL Draft— the second-highest rated player in the BCHL.
Prior to juniors, Teleguine played at Thayer Academy in Braintree, Massachusetts where he was teammates with current UConn defenseman Jake Flynn from 2017-19.
The Huskies’ incoming 2021 class also includes forward Chase Bradley, hybrid defenseman/forward Jake Veilleux (a walk-on), and goaltender Logan Terness as freshmen along with two grad transfers, forward Kevin O’Neil (Yale) and goaltender Darion Hanson (Union). UConn plans to add another defenseman to that group as well.
