Thayer's Griffin commits to Northeastern

By Scott Barboza

Thayer Academy hockey sophomore forward Lincoln Griffin has given a verbal commitment to Northeastern, Tigers head coach Tony Amonte confirmed.

Griffin, a 1997 birthdate player, is expected to join the Huskies for the 2016-17 season.

"Lincoln is a player with an amazing work ethic and a player who, on daily basis, is always working on some aspect of his game," Amonte said. "He is the one player on my team that always seems to find a way to get the job done."

The Walpole native led the Tigers in scoring as a freshman last season and again leads Thayer in scoring for the 2012-13 season with 14-23-37 totals through 23 games played.

"I was shocked that he wasn't scooped up earlier," Amonte added. "You can just see the drive and passion in his game every time he steps on the ice."

Thayer hosts ISL rival St. Sebastian's Wednesday in a NEPSAC tournament quarter-final game at the Canton SportsPlex (3:30 p.m.).
