Mavs get D commitment

According to the USHL, the Mavericks recently got a commitment from defenseman Carter Foguth of the Muskegon Lumberjacks. The third-year junior player appears to be a defensive defenseman, having scored just 12 points in 93 career games (he also has 231 penalty minutes in that stretch). The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder is the Jacks' captain and has them off to a great start (8-1-1) this season.

From the USHL release:
“I am very excited for being given the opportunity to play hockey at the college level; the coaching staff and players at the university made me feel welcome and right at home,” Foguth said. “It has been a long journey for my family and I, and I am grateful to have received an immense amount of support from the Mervis family and the Muskegon Lumberjacks.”
Foguth, a native of Fenton, Mich., is now one of four USHLers committed to the Mavericks. The others are forwards Luca Frigo of Omaha and Mike Huntebrinker of Waterloo, as well as defenseman Eli May of Tri-City. Minnesota State also has commitments from three BCHL players: goalie Cole Huggins of Coquitlam, defenseman Sean Flanagan of Salmon Arm and forward Ryan Schwalbe of Salmon Arm; as well as Eden Prairie High defenseman Hunter Warner.

According to Chris Heisenberg's recruiting site, May is like a '14 recruit, Schwalbe could be '13 or '14 and Warner is a '14 or '15.
