Top NAHL goalie de-commits from LSSU - Junior Hockey News

One of the very best goalies in the North American Hockey League is on the Division 1, National Collegiate Athletic Association market.
Tyler Marble, a 1992 birth year who has been a sensation with the North Division-leading Soo Eagles, has de-committed from the Lake Superior State University Lakers.
Marble had verbally committed to Lake Superior State in 2008 when he was a 16-year old.
Marble apparently made his decision to de-commit within the past few days and notified Lakers head coach Jim Roque of his decision.
Part of the reason for Marble's decision is that the Lakers stand to return all three of their goalies for the 2013-2014 season.
Thus far this season, Marble has a record of 26-7-3 to go with four shutouts, a goals against average of 2.35 and a save percentage of .940 for the Eagles.
The Eagles have a record of 36-12-4 and are first in the North Division with eight games to go in the regular season.
While Marble advised Roque of his decision to de-commit, Lake Superior State still had to release the star goalie from his commitment for him to be able to play at another Division 1 school in 2013-2014.
Earlier today, Lake Superior State athletic director Kristin Dunbar formally released Marble in a letter sent to his father, Bernie and copied to others, including Roque and Lake Superior State president Tony McLain.
This is a copy of the e-mail sent by Dunbar.

Mr. Marble, I spoke with Coach Roque. He confirmed the full release for your son, Tyler.  I have processed out the required paperwork with the NCAA.  Tyler has been released from his NLI/commitment to LSSU. Please let me know if you need further assistance.  I have copied Jim Roque and Dr. Tony McLain on this email.

Good on LSSU for doing what is best for the player. I have not seen Tyler Marble play but his stats speak for themselves and I am sure a top program will pick him up quickly.

Thanks, Steve.



Marble is an exceptional goalie and a quality kid and another Division 1 school is going to scoop him up, I would think.
