Garrett Haar Picks Western Michigan

Washington Capitals prospect and Northeastern decommit Garrett Haar made his college choice on Friday, selecting the Western Michigan Broncos over playing for the USHL's Fargo Force. Haar made his announcement via Twitter, natch.

"Im am officially a western michigan bronco!!!!"

Haar impressed Caps general manager George McPhee so much that McPhee wanted Haar to play in college over the USHL this year

"McPhee put in a phone call to BC coach Jerry York, who coached McPhee, the 1982 Hobey Baker Award winner, in college at Bowling Green State. Haar was committed to Northeastern and decommitted a day after he was drafted by the Capitals after coach Greg Cronin left the program to be an assistant with the Toronto Maple Leafs."

However, with the signing of John Gaudreau this week, the Eagles didn't have any available scholarships for Haar and he's now a Bronco. Haar was looking at North Dakota, Minnesota, Minnesota-Duluth and Boston University after he decommited from Northeastern, but didn't receive any scholarship offers from those schools. He had previously declined scholarship opportunities with UMass-Lowell and Western Michigan.

The signing of John Gaudreau to the 2011 class gives the Eagles 10 incoming recruits for the Class of 2011 according to Chris Heisenberg's recruiting list. In addition to Gaudreau, BC brings in Danny Linnell, Michael Sit, Destry Straight, Cam Spiro, Quinn Smith and K.J. Tiefenwerth at forward, Mark Begert on defense and a pair of EJHL goalies in Brad Barone and Brian Billett to back up Parker Milner.
