Former St. Louis Jr. Blues forward Nick Saracino has committed to play next year for the Providence College Friars in Hockey East. Saracino currently skates for the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders of the United States Hockey League. He currently leads the team in RoughRiders with 10 points in 8 games and is a +14.
Head Coach J.P. Beilsten said, "Nick has amazing skill and we couldn't be happier for him. He has worked hard, battled through injuries last year, and now has become a leader on a team that has a rich tradition with tremendous success moving players on to the collegiate level. He deserves this opportunity."
