Buffalo Jr. Sabres forward Max Mikowski has confirmed his commitment to join the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Tigers beginning with the 2014-15 Atlantic Hockey season.
The native of Cheektowoga, New York is currently in his third season with the Jr. Sabres after previously playing prep school hockey for the St. Francis High School Red Raiders. As an 18-year old rookie in 2011-12, Mikowski posted 19 points in 45 regular season games played. He would improve on that offensive output last season, recording 17 goals and 35 points in 55 games played to help the Jr. Sabres finish as runner-up for the OJHL regular season crown. Thus far this season, Mikowski is on pace to once again set career-highs, sitting tied for third in scoring on th club with 25 points in 24 games.
Congratulations to Max and best of luck as he closes out his junior career!
