Chicago Blackhawks prospect Dylan Sikura became the 50th player in Northeastern University’s history to score 100 career points
Friday night was a special night for Northeastern University forward Dylan Sikura. Although the Huskies fell to the Quinnipiac Bobcats 6-4, Sikura recorded his 100th career point becoming the 50th player in team history to achieve that mark. Sikura is the third Husky in four years to reach that feat along with Kevin Roy, Zach Aston-Reese, and John Stevens.
Scoring two goals, one assist, and recording 11 shots on goal, Sikura now leads all college hockey players with 10 points(5G,5A). CollegeHockeyNews.com currently ranks Sikura as the #1 forward in the country.
Sikura was a 6th round pick of the Blackhawks in 2014 and has made significant progress at Northeastern. Last year during his junior year, Sikura broke out and scored 57 points (21G,36A). Over the summer at Blackhawks Prospect Camp, he was the standout player with noticeable patience and play-making ability.
This will be Sikura’s last season at Northeastern and it looks like he’s making it count. He and his linemate Adam Gaudette, a Vancouver Canucks 2015 5th round pick, seem to be on the score sheet every night with no signs of slowing down.
Sikura could join the Blackhawks after his season at Northeastern is done, but he has yet to sign a contract. The Blackhawks signed his brother, Tyler Sikura, who is now playing for the Blackhawks AHL affiliate the Rockford Ice Hogs.
