It has been a year to remember for Will McDonough.
Before returning to the USHL’s Sioux Falls Stampede for another season, the 17-year-old McDonough (Duxbury, Mass.) firmed up his plans for playing at the next level by committing to Harvard University.
With his future certain, the 6-foot-2, 191-pound power forward has focused on developing his game in a league that does just that for players better than any other.
“It’s been a good season all around. It’s kind of flown by,” said McDonough, who is eligible for this summer’s NHL Entry Draft. “I feel like I’ve made a lot of strides on and off the ice. My skating and my defensive play have improved a lot. I’ve wanted to grow my game into just a more mature game.”
