The Merrimack men’s hockey team received a commitment from ’98-born forward Chase Gresock on Monday.
Gresock, an Ohio native, is in his second season with the Youngstown Phantoms of the USHL, where he has two points (1 goal, 1 assist) in his first two games of the season. In 52 games last season as an 18-year-old, Gresock had 12 goals and four assists.
Prior to joining the Phantoms, the six-foot, 190-pounder played for the Ohio Blue Jackets, where former Merrimack forward Marty Laroche was at onetime the head coach of the U16 team. In 2015-16, Gresock had 32 points in 30 games (14 goals, 18 assists) and in 2014-15, as a member of the team’s U16 squad, Gresock had 27 goals and 19 assists in 32 games.
Gresock was also an accomplished baseball player in high school.
Excited to announce my commitment to Merrimack College! Thanks to everyone who helped me along the way! #Warriors
