(above) Two brothers have committed to DU and two more are waiting in the wings. DU's most recent recruit Nick Shore (16) poses with brothers Quentin (15), Drew (18) and Baker (9)
Mike Chambers of the Denver Post has all the details of Nick Shore committing to the University of Denver. Shore will most likely join his brother Drew on the DU team in 2010-11. This is a major commitment, on par with Tyler Bozak, Joe Colborne or Drew Shore in previous years.
Nick Shore spent the past season playing on the USNDP-Under 17 team with fellow DU recruit and future classmate Jason Zucker. DU's 2010 recruiting class will be anchored by two of the most exciting and talented forwards in the country, Zucker providing the speed and Shore the playmaking. Shore had 19 goals & 19 assists in 67 games, while Zucker chipped in 19 goals and 11 assists in 48 games.
Last season, Drew and Nick became the first brothers to play for the U.S. National Development Program in Ann Arbor, Mich. Drew was on the under-18 team and Nick on the under-17 squad.
Nick Shore is considered to be one of the top eligible American forwards in the 2011 NHL Draft.
