Former Jr. Coyotes Player Makes NCAA Commitment

By T1EHL Staff , 02/03/20, 3:45PM CST


T1EHL and the Jr. Coyotes are proud to announce that former player, Sam Deckhut, has made a verbal commitment to play NCAA hockey at St. Lawrence University.

Deckhut was a standout forward for two seasons for the 15O and 16U Coyotes, and was part of two consecutive State Championships and USA Hockey Rocky Mountain District Championship teams.

This season, he is finishing his senior school year with Salisbury Prep School in Connecticut. Deckhut originally grew up in San Diego CA and moved to Arizona to play for the Jr. Coyotes. Known as a talented, smooth skating 200ft centerman, the 17-year-old Deckhut tallied at a point-per-game pace while in Midget AAA hockey.

Deckhut will be the 2nd recent Jr. Coyotes to suit up for the Saints and will soon join former Jr. Coyote, Carson Dimoff (99) out in Canton, NY.

He is now added to the constantly growing list of college commitments from the state’s strong 2002 born skaters. Thus far, this college group includes Riley Stuart (ASU), Matthew Knies (Minnesota), and Josh Doan (ASU).

The entire Jr. Coyotes program and the T1EHL would like to congratulate Sam and his family on his exciting achievement. Where do you go from here? Everywhere.
