MUSKEGON, Michigan (December 20th) – For the second time this week, the Muskegon Lumberjacks are proud to announce another college commitment as Defenseman Adam Larkin has decided to play for Yale University out of the ECAC following his junior career becoming the second Lumberjack on this year’s team to commit to the Bulldogs.
Larkin, the Clarkston, Michigan native, is currently in his first season with the Lumberjacks and has recorded one goal and four assists in 27 games played.
“I chose Yale because of the opportunities available at the institution; the hockey team has proven to have continued success especially under the current coaching staff, and then, of course, the education itself cannot be matched at many other places in the world,” said Larkin. “Yale provides an incredible opportunity in hockey as well as education for me to succeed after my time there.”
Prior to joining Muskegon, Larkin spent last season with the Honeybaked Midget Major Team out of the High Performance Hockey League (HPHL) totaling 20 points (6 goals and 14 assists) in 31 games played while also serving as an Assistant Captain on the team. Additionally, Larkin played in five games for the Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings out of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) notching a plus-two rating.
From 2010-12, Larkin played two seasons of varsity high school hockey in Michigan for the Clarkston Wolves and totaled 69 points (29 goals and 40 assists) in 52 games played that included earning Division One First Team All-State honors during the 2011-12 season.
Larkin joins teammate Robbie DeMontis as current Lumberjacks who have committed to play in New Haven, Connecticut following their respective junior careers.
