’95 forward Michael Babcock has committed to Merrimack College. A 5-foot-10 forward from Detroit Catholic Central High School, he totaled 42 points (10-32–42) this past season in 30 games, being named one of just four All-State forwards by the Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League.
Babcock was picked 68th overall in the USHL Draft by Cedar Rapids last season, and it’s likely he’ll play there next season. He is the son of Detroit Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock and skated at the Red Wings development camp last summer.
Babcock visited Merrimack’s campus two weeks ago.
