THE UNH MEN’S HOCKEY BLOG: UNH Commits Replace 11-30-2023: Highlight on Josh Participant

Participant Highlight

~ Josh Participant (DOB: 5/13/05), the 6’0″, 190 lbs., right-shot defenseman from Thorofare, New Jersey, performed three seasons of 15U by 18U with Bishop Kearney Selects (Rochester, New York) – one yr behind UNH freshman Ryan Conmy. Final December, Participant moved as much as the USHL as a 17-year-old. In 38 video games with the Inexperienced Bay Gamblers, he scored 1 objective, 5 assists.

This season, Participant has earned a management position as an Alternate Captain and beginning defenseman for Inexperienced Bay. He has upped his offensive play scoring 3 targets and a game-winning help in his final 5 video games.

These video highlights present Participant’s vary of offensive expertise. Two targets got here from the blueline – one wrister and a slap shot. On the opposite objective and help, he skates sturdy to the web. Every rating occurred when groups have been at full power.

Josh Participant verbally dedicated to UNH in August, 2022 and signed his Nationwide Letter of Intent in December, 2022. He graduated from highschool final spring. I challenge he’ll enroll both subsequent fall or in 2025. It is going to rely on quite a lot of elements together with what number of present UNH defensemen go away the group on the finish of this season.

Information & Notes

~ The present window for signing a Nationwide Letter of Intent opened on November eighth and can shut on August 1, 2024. A flurry of gamers signed an NLI with UNH over the previous few weeks together with Luca Primerano, Jack Sadowski, Connor de Haro, Worth Grimes, Reid Conn, and Lars Petter Eckholm. 10 out of the 16 gamers dedicated to UNH have signed an NLI.

~ The New England Prep Faculty season received underway this week. 3 UNH Commits are taking part in: Jack Sadowski (Kimball Union Academy, Meridan, NH), Kole Hyles (Cushing Academy, Ashburnham, MA), and George McCaffrey (Westminster Faculty, Simsbury, CT).

NOTE
The statistics for the commits, introduced within the above desk, are categorized by the projected yr they are going to enroll in UNH. For instance, the “2024 Commits” are projected to start taking part in for UNH within the Fall of 2024. I’ve primarily based these projections on the next elements:
~ Variety of UNH gamers leaving the group on the finish of the earlier season and the place they performed.
~ Variety of incoming switch gamers and the place they play.
~ If a Nationwide Letter of Intent has been signed.
~ The yr the commit and UNH coaches initially focused for enrollment in UNH.
~ How previous the commit can be upon admission.
~ Variety of years in junior hockey previous to admission.
~ The commit’s efficiency in latest seasons in addition to accidents.
~ Anticipated date of highschool commencement.
