Jack Christ of Chanhassen High School has committed to play college hockey at Minnesota State University. The senior forward will be a captain this year for the Storm and is currently playing for the St. Cloud Norsemen of the NAHL. Last season. Christ had 45 points, tied for the team lead, in 28 games last season with Chanhassen.
The Mavs are getting a great player as Christ is a strong skater with superior edgework. He can control the puck in tight areas and opens up ice for himself by making instant cuts or by transitioning away from pressure. He has good playmaking skills as his passes are accurate and with pace. Jack also possesses great finishing skills as he unloads his shot quickly and with various looks. He’s an overall gamer that gives maximum effort in the defensive zone and gives nice support to teammates.
Coach Luke Strand Minnesota State have done an excellent job recruiting in Minnesota as the Mavericks have made it a point to get some of the state’s top talent. Just this month they have received commitments from Aiden Grossklaus of Woodbury High School and Tate Pritchard of Lakeville South (Waterloo/USHL).
