Penticton Forward Wade Murphy Decommits From Merrimack College:


It's certain that Penticton Vees 18-year-old forward Wade Murphy will play college hockey next season, but the question is where after he decommitted from Merrimack College on Thursday.

With his skill set, I'm sure that Murphy won't have a shortage of NCAA offers coming his way this season in the BCHL.
