I had a chance to speak with Kyle’s dad during the Stars recent Spring Camp and so I knew this announcement was on the way. I am pleased to finally get to write about it. Kyle Hall has committed to Plattsburgh University in upstate New York. There is more info on the North Stars website and the link is at the top of this post.
What I want to talk about is how happy I am for Kyle. First of all the location of Plattsburgh is pretty cool. Close to some really amazing Eastern cities and Hallzy will get a chance to see a lot of New York and the surrounding areas. Not to mention get himself a quality education while playing hockey. It’s an exciting time for Kyle and it is well deserved.
In my time covering the North Stars I have met a lot of really quality hockey players and even better young men. I won’t name them all because there’s about 40 of them and it would take a while. Kyle Hall is one of the nicest young men you will ever meet. He is respectful, intelligent and hard working. I like his family and I am really happy for all of them.
Plattsburgh University is getting a great hockey player with incredible speed, a very good wrist shot and a lot of defensive qualities. You know Hallzy will be winning a bunch of face-offs in the State University of New York Athletic Conference. More importantly the Plattsburgh Business program is getting a smart young student who I am sure will make the school a better place.
Congratulations Kyle and best of luck next season.
