Blackhawks Prospect Drew Commesso Named to USA Men’s Olympic Team

Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks will have representation with both the Women’s and Men’s Olympic U.S. Hockey teams at the upcoming 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. Joining development coach Kendall Coyne-Schofield in Beijing on the Women’s side will be Blackhawks goaltending prospect Drew Commesso with the Men’s team.

Commesso is one of 15 NCAA players to make-up the 25-man roster for the U.S.

After missing the 2021 World Junior Championships due to COVID restrictions and having the 2022 World Junior Championships canceled/postponed, Commesso gets another opportunity to represent his country at a major tournament. The 2020 second-round draft pick was selected as an injury replacement for Team USA at the World Championships this past summer, but did not play in a game.

Commesso has been the top goaltender at the University of Boston for the past two seasons and was named to the Hockey East All-Rookie team as a freshman last season. In two years at Boston, Commesso has a 14-10-4 record with a .910 save-percentage. This season, Commesso is 8-7-3 with a .907 save-percentage and a 2.67 GAA.
