Sir York and the Eagles picked up another commitment on Monday evening when Kimball Union forward Chris Shero committed to Boston College. Chris took to Twitter to make his announcement.
Proud to announce my commitment to play college hockey at Boston College! Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way! #GoEagles

Shero spent last season at prep school with Tim Whitehead's Kimball Union Academy, recording 15 points in 37 games for the Wildcats. Shero, along with future Eagle J.D. Dudek, helped the Wildcats to the Piatelli/Simmons Small School Championship with a 5-1 victory over Dexter. Prior to heading to prep school, Shero came up through the Pittsburgh midget hockey leagues.
The 5-foot-10, 180 pound forward out of Pittsburgh is the son of Penguins General Manager Ray Shero; an organization with deep ties to the Heights. Brian Dumoulin, Brian Gibbons, Bill Guerin, Chuck Kobasew, Brooks Orpkin, Phillip Samuelsson and Rob Scuderi are all former Eagles in the Pens organization.
