Former Los Angeles Jr. King Ty Murchison has announced his commitment to attend and play his NCAA Division I hockey at Arizona State University following his junior career.
This season, Murchison, a 2003-born defenseman, is skating for the U.S. National Team Development Program’s Under-18 Team.
Murchison tweeted: “Proud to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey at Arizona State University. Thank you to my friends, coaches, teammates, and especially my family for supporting me along the way. #ForksUp”
In October, Murchison, along with former Jr. Kings defensemen Aidan Hreschuk and forward Andre Gasseau, both Boston College recruits, and defenseman Shai Buium, who will play his NCAA Division I hockey at the University of Denver, were recognized by NHL Central Scouting on its preliminary “Players to Watch” list for 2021 draft-eligibles.
Murchison, Gasseau and Hreschuk were members of the Jr. Kings’ 2017-18 Pacific District champion 14U AAA team that advanced to the USA Hockey National Championships.
