It was widely believed that Boston Junior Bruins (EJHL) goaltender Joe Young was coming to Union in the fall of 2014. Young's own Twitter account said "Union 2014." However, it now appears Young will arrive in the fall of 2015, as his account now says "Union 2015."
Waiting a year would seem to make sense. After Troy Grosenick gave up his senior year of eligibility to sign with the San Jose Sharks earlier this month, Union received a commitment for next season from Chicago Steel (USHL) netminder Alex Sakellaropoulos. Young would now be the fourth goaltender on the roster for 2014-2015, joining Colin Stevens (then a senior), Sakellaropoulos (then a sophomore), and Dillon Pieri (then a senior).
That glut eases up the following year as both Stevens and Pieri will have graduated. The Dutchmen could have Sakellaropoulos, Young, and another goaltender for the fall of 2015.
Young, who turned 19 this week, had a 2.71 goals against average and a .907 save percentage in 30 games for the Junior Bruins this past season.
