According to College Hockey PROSPECTive, Michigan has received a commitment from British Columbia forward Dexter Dancs.
Dancs, a 17-year-old power forward-type, spent most of this past season with the Osoyoos Coyotes of the KIJHL and will advance to the BCHL’s Penticton Vees full-time in the 2012-13 season.
Dancs follows in the footsteps of former Vees Brendan Morrison, Brian Lebler and Craig Murray, who all played for Michigan after a stint in Penticton.
“Dexter Dancs is a big, young, raw power forward with an excellent skating stride and an equally as good set of hands and shot,” Penticton assistant coach Michael Hengen told CHP. “Dexter will as easily take the puck hard to the net, set up a play or drop his gloves to stand up for a teammate. Dexter will be another one of many Michigan Wolverines that they will develop to have a chance of playing pro hockey.”
Dancs joins fellow forward Dylan Larkin, who is slated to play for the U.S. NTDP's Under-17 team next season, as Michigan’s first two commits for 2014.
