Jr. Sharks grad Cassetti commits to B.C.
Pleasanton’s Joey Cassetti, a former San Jose Jr. Shark, has committed to attend and play his NCAA Division I hockey at Boston College.
A 1999-born forward, Cassetti is playing this season with USA Hockey’s U.S. National Development Under-17 Team.
“Boston College is a place where I can grow to be the best player I can be and get a great education at the same time,” said Cassetti. “I’m privileged to go to my dream school.”
Cassetti spent three seasons in the Jr. Sharks organization before playing two years of Midget hockey with Michigan’s Oakland Jr. Grizzlies.
“I can’t say enough about the Jr. Sharks organization and what my teammates and coaches did for me there,” said Cassetti. “For the three years I played there, I made lifelong friends as well as developed into the player I am today.”
Located in Chestnut Hill, Mass., Boston College competes in Hockey East.
