Tri-City Storm sign forward Colby Ambrosio
Tri–City announcing an agreement with 15–year–old forward Colby Ambrosio today. The Boston College commit skated with the Buffalo Junior Sabres 16U program this season where he tallied 35 goals and 33 assists. He's the 2nd and final player to sign a tender agreement with the Storm this year.
Tri–City made the signing official at a press conference inside the Viaero Center. Ambrosio visited the team facilities on Wednesday with his parents and chose the Storm over offers from other USHL teams. The hospitality Colby received from the franchise ultimately sealing the deal.
"It was just an unbelievable feeling when I got here," Ambrosio told NTV News. "When I went into the locker room all the guys came up and introduced themselves, I met the whole coaching staff. The feeling I had here, I didn't have with any other USHL team. I think the feeling I have here is a great feeling something that I haven't felt before. It was just a really great feeling and I'm very comfortable here."
Ambrosio is eligible to play next season for the Storm. Tri–City was supposed to play Lincoln tonight but it's been moved to tomorrow afternoon. Puck drops at 2:05 from the Viaero Center.
