4/26/2018 – DeKalb, IL | Forward Nick Marcuccilli has committed to Northern Illinois University for the fall of 2018 and to NIU Hockey for the 2018-2019 season.
Marcuccilli posted 18 points (10 G, 8 A) in 20 games for the Illiana Blackbirds during his previous season of play.
The Wheaton, IL native chose to commit to NIU because of its location.
“[NIU] is a good school that’s close to home,” the 22-year-old said.
The 6’3”, 215 lbs. power forward models his game after former Philadelphia Flyers great Eric Lindros.
Marcuccilli, a business major, is highly anticipating the start of his NIU Hockey career.
“[I hope to] have fun playing my last years of hockey,” Marcuccilli said.
