He was the talk of the sports center for a week last season and now we know where he will continue his career after his high school career is finished. Kislin, the junior defense man for Freehold Township, announced via social media that he would be continuing his career at Northeastern University. He spoke with me about taking that next step going from a solid program at Freehold Township, to committing to play Division one hockey.
When asked about his school selection Kislin added,” It’s a great school academically and any chance you have too play in such a great location is amazing”. He noted that when you have a school that excels in both academics and the sport of hockey; the decision, is in fact easier. When asked if finding a school affects his mentality going forward he explained to me ” Of course, but now the hard work really begins.” Even though he has committed he knows that the hardest part of NJ Hockey has still not been satisfied.
After loosing in the quarterfinals of the SCT last season to Howell, Kislin is hopeful that he and his teammates can advance even further ” We just have to play as a team and do the little things right.”, Kislin acknowledged when asked about his teams championship aspirations for this year. He knows that playing as a team will be important just as they were able to for much of last season.
The Huskies will be happy to have a player like Kislin. Even though they still have a couple season before his arrival, they could certainly use his defensive puck handling abilities. Last season, the Huskies posted a record of 16-16-4. They play in the Hockey east conference. The Majority of schools in this conference come from New England. If it is hockey you are looking for then this is a great conference with Northeastern, UMASS, and Boston University as some of the leading Universities of the Conference.
