LoVecchio Chooses Broncos

After an official visit to WMU last Tuesday right-winger Jeff LoVecchio decided being a Bronco is what he wants to be. This is the second commitment in under a week as the Bronco hockey team tries to finish out their 2005 recruiting class.

LoVecchio plays for the Omaha Lancers of the USHL, the same league as 2005 Bronco recruit Matt Clackson and 2006 recruits Chris Clackson and Mark Stockdale.

Hailing from Chesterfield, MO this 6'2" 186lbs. forward adds size and solid defensive play to the Bronco line-up as well as a respective scoring touch. He is currently sixth on his team in scoring with 12 goals and 19 assists for 31 points while being one of only seven players to play in all 41 games. 4 of his goals have come on the power play while he's added a pair of game winners and he also holds a team leading +22 rating as well as 60 penalty minutes.

LoVecchio is in his third year in the USHL and has already eclipsed his point totals of his past two seasons. In 2002 he spent time with the under-18 USA National Team.

This most recent addition brings the total number of commits for 2005 to six: LoVecchio (RW), Matt Clackson (C), David Krisky (LW), Chris Frank (D), Steve Silver (D) and Ryan Mensing (G). All but Silver are on scholarship while the Broncos still have room on the roster for two more walk-ons awaiting word on defenseman Kevin O'Connor (Omaha, USHL) and a possible forward.
