Two forwards commit to Falcon hockey
Forwards John Schilling and Keith Burchett have verbally committed to play college hockey at Bowling Green.
Schilling and Burchett will play in the United States (Junior) Hockey League next season, Schilling for Chicago and Burchett for Sioux Falls.
Both played last season for the Chicago Mission midget team. Gino Cavallini, who scored in the fourth overtime to give the Falcons the NCAA championship in 1984, is an assistant coach for the Mission.
Schilling also played five games in the USHL and the North American (Junior) Hockey League last season. He's 6-foot, 165 pounds and is from Oswego, Ill. He turns 19 in January.
Burchett had 17 goals and 22 assist in 31 games for the Mission last season. He turns 19 in December.
They are expected to join the Falcons for the 2015-16 season, but could join the team for the 2014-15 season if junior forward Ryan Carpenter leaves BG after next season to sign a pro contact. - GORDON
