Weymouth's Piacentini commits to Norwich


Former Weymouth hockey standout and current South Shore Kings forward Tyler Piacentini has given a commitment to Division 3 power Norwich University.

The 5-foot-5, 155-pounder was a ESPN Boston All-State Second-Team selection for the 2010-11 season as a senior with the Wildcats, after helping to lead Weymouth to Super 8 crossover round appearance.

This season with the Kings, Piacentini has 13 goals and 29 assists in 36 games.

"I'm very excited to continue my hockey career at Norwich University at one of the most prestigious Division 3 hockey programs in the country with such great history," Piacentini told ESPN Boston. "I could not have done it without my family and friends, and my coaches and teammates who make me better every day."
