Max Sauve Commits To Penn State Hockey
Forward Max Sauve verbally committed to Penn State men’s hockey on Wednesday afternoon, flipping from his original college choice of Vermont.
Sauve, a right-handed forward from Acushnet, MA, originally committed to Vermont in 2015 when he was just a sophomore in high school, but flipped to Penn State just months before the start of his collegiate career.
The 19-year old spent last season with Avon Old Farms School in Connecticut, finishing tied for second on the team with 22 points in 23 games. Sauve played alongside Matt Kirwan, the older brother of Ryan Kirwan, a member of Penn State’s recruiting class of 2020. Standing at 5’9″ and weighing in at 165 lbs., Sauve’s strongest attribute is his speed, but he isn’t afraid to mix it up and go to the dirty areas on the ice.
Sauve becomes the ninth member of Penn State’s incoming recruiting class. However, the only two that have signed their letters of intent so far are center Aarne Talvitie and defenseman Paul DeNaples.
