Phillips Andover's Light commits to Union

Phillips Andover hockey defenseman Connor Light announced his verbal commitment to Union College via his Twitter account Tuesday.

A 1995 birthdate, the 6-foot-5, 205-pound Sudbury native posted six goals and five assists in 25 games played last season.

"Connor has great size and reach, but complements that with an excellent skill set," Big Blue head coach Dean Boylan said. "He has good hands and great feel for a big man. I believe he will be a very good fit for Union."
