Dexter Southfield junior right wing Doug Grimes verbally committed to play college hockey at Boston University, he announced on Twitter Thursday evening.
The Brookline, Mass., native is in his second season playing for Dexter Southfield and head coach Dan Donato. Grimes is expected to play a more significant role this winter for Dexter, a team expected to once again compete for a spot in the Elite 8 Tournament.
During his first prep season, Grimes posted six goals and added 10 assists. The 6-foot-1 power forward showed vast improvement from last season to this with a solid fall for the Cape Cod Whalers 18-U. He had an assist in Dexter’s season opening 10-2 victory at Cushing on Wednesday.
