Timmy Lovell is set to sign a National Letter of Intent to play hockey at Boston College.
The ’02 left-shot defenseman from Hingham, Mass., will join the Eagles next fall for the 2020-21 season, according to sources. Lovell played for the Boston Advantage 18-U this fall, impressing scouts at several showcases along the way.
Lovell, whose father, Tim Lovell, was his midget coach, has started practicing with the Chicago Steel and will play at least a few games in the USHL the rest of the season.
Lovell had originally committed to Ohio State, but word of his de-commitment began to circulate over the last month. He had interest from several other Hockey East schools, but elected to go with the Eagles.
