St. Seb's Ronan commits to UConn

October, 23, 2013
St. Sebastian's hockey senior forward Corey Ronan has given a verbal commitment to the University of Connecticut, Arrows head coach Sean McCann confirmed to ESPN Boston.

Ronan, a Franklin native, is expected to join the Huskies for the 2014-15 campaign.

Last season, Ronan put up 11-19-30 total in 28 games played with St. Seb's after a 32-point season as a sophomore.

"Corey is an outstanding kid," McCann said. "He is a leader because of his work ethic and determination is unmatched and his desire to win is exceptional. He has tremendous speed, which presents opportunities for him offensively."

But McCann also acknowledged what makes Ronan, son of former BU star and Montreal Canadien Ed Ronan, really tick.

"Corey plays the full sheet [of ice]," McCann said. "He works as hard defensively as he does offensively, and he is a dangerous penalty killer. I can't say enough about Corey's character, one can never have enough kids like him on your team."
