Soo Thunderbirds goalie Michael Doan has committed to Northern Michigan University and will sign a national letter of intent with the school's Division 1 hockey program on April 15.
The plan is for Doan to play his final season of junior in 2011-12 and then join NMU for the 2012-13 campaign.
The 6-foot-4 Doan backstopped the Thunderbirds to first place in the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League this season and was named to the first All Star Team.
