CHN Staff Report
Malden, Mass. Malden Catholic sophomore center Ara Nazarian has verbally committed to New Hampshire.
One of the top players in Massachusetts this past season, Nazarian led the Lancers to their third Super 8 championship (Division IA), scoring nine goals in MC’s five tournament games, including four shorthanded goals and a hat trick in a semifinal win over Catholic Memorial.
He finished this season with 26 goals and 20 assists.
He is the fourth member of his team to commit to a Hockey East school, joining Casey Fitzgerald (Boston College), Michael Iovanna (UMass) and Tyler Sifferlen (UMass Lowell). Ryan Fitzgerald, who played for the Lancers last season, is a BC recruit and considered a high-end prospect for this summer's NHL Draft.
