We are please to announce the commitment of current 16U Jr. Sabres player Niles Benson to Harvard University. Benson, a 6'1", 175 pound forward from Buffalo, NY, is entering his 2nd season with the Jr. Sabres.
"Niles, is a dynamic power forward that has a tremendous skillset. He takes a lot of pride in his development on and off the ice," said coach Jake Brozyna. "He has great character and comes from a great family. This opportunity is well deserved."
Benson finished last season with 75pts. This year Niles will be an affiliate player on the Jr. Sabres 20U OJHL team along with playing on the 16U midget team.
Benson was drafted by the Green Bay Gamblers of the USHL and the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL.
