Guliford Conn.,- Jack and Nick Ring of the Boston Advantage have decided on where they will play in college and will attend the University of New Hampshire to play for Mike Souza.
Jack Ring really developed his game in the last year. After a move from forward to defense, his game blossomed for the Advantage. Ring playing U18 this year, had 19 points in 17 games in the ECEL as he helped lead the Boston Advantage to the ECEL Championship. The 6'3 180 pound forward, has the potential to be really special according to his coach. "He will need to add some weight and strength over the next year in order to become that impact forward that we expect him to be," said U18 coach of the Boston Advantage Tim Lovell.
Younger brother Nick is a 2003 birth year playing for the Boston Advantage. In the last two years, he has taken a lot of the right steps to grow his game while with the program. According to his coach, if he can get anywhere close to the size of his brother, you are going to see an exceptional player. "If Nick gets half the size his brother has you are going to have a very high-end prospect in the future. Nick has worked hard to overcome adversity being small in stature but that has helped him to become the player that he is now," said Lovell.
The brothers join a long list of Advantage alums to commit to playing college hockey. The brothers are one of over 60 alums that will or have gone on to play college hockey. The program has produced Kevin Hayes (BC), Noah Hanifin (BC), 2018 Hobey Baker Winner Adam Gaudette (Northeastern), 2018 USA Olympians Ryan Donato (Harvard), and Chris Bourque (BU), and many others throughout the years.
