Bandits Frank Dichiara commits to Princeton, Prepares for USHL Draft May 15, 2012 8:28 AM

TJHN featured player Frank Dichiara announced his commitment to play NCAA Division I Hockey for Princeton University of the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) on friday.

Dichiara, 18, was third in team scoring with 51 points (23 goals, 28 assists) in 59 games played. The 6’2/215 lbs. forward helped the Bandits win the Midwest Division regular season and playoff titles and a Runner-Up finish in the Robertson Cup National Championship game. He registered eight points in 12 playoff games.

Dichiara also represented the NAHL 18U Selects Team at the 2012 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament in Troy, Michigan back in February.

Speaking with Ernie Dichiara yesterday, Franks father, the family could not be more excited. "Princeton was always on Franks radar, it has always been one of the schools he had hopped to attend since he was a child."

Dichiara continued, "There are so many good players here in the New York area, yet so few have the opportunity to play in the NAHL. Frank was fortunate, and the NAHL rewarded him with the exposure he needed to get this opportunity. As a parent you always want the best for your children. Now Frank will have the opportunity to receive an education that is second to none."

Dichiara will now begin preparing for the USHL draft. Heading home from St. Louis this week, Dichiara wont be taking any time off, hes back on the ice with Pat LaFontaine on wednesday night. An unofficial adviser to DiChiara, LaFontaine knows talent when he sees it. Dichiara has access to one of the greatest NHL forwards to ever lace them up, and that experience can be invaluable.

The question now is not if Dichiara is a USHL level player, but where in the USHL will he land. TJHN wishes all the best to Frank and the Dichiara family.
