Little Bruins 16U and NCDC Junior Bruins defenseman Ian Moore has committed to Harvard for the fall of 2021-22 season.
The 6-foot-3-inch, 165-pound rearguard was a force just this past season for the Little Bruins, lighting the lamp six times and finishing with five assists as well for 11 points in 10 EHF Selects Division games.
Last season with his school team, St. Mark’s, Moore was almost unstoppable on the blue line and in the offensive zone as he had 16 goals and 20 assists in just 31 games.
Along with his experience with the Little Bruins, he is also a former Cape Cod Whaler - another EHF Selects Member Organization - as well as a former member of the South Shore Kings.
Little Bruins head coach Peter Masters had nothing but praise for the ‘02 Moore, not just on the ice, but off it as well.
"Ian is one of the best players I have had the opportunity to coach on the Little Bruins over the last 10 years,” Masters told USPHL.com. “Excellent skater, great vision and a true leader on and off the ice."
Masters sees a very bright future for the 17-year-old from Concord, Mass.
“I won't be surprised if he is a high draft pick next summer and he will be an excellent college player,” Masters said.
Fellow Little Bruins coach Chris Masters echoed his brother’s sentiments.
“Ian and his family were the recipients of our most prestigious award, the Tom Federico Memorial Award,” Masters said. “It speaks to the player, person and family.”
