Saints Forward Inks Commitment Less Than Two Months Into USHL Career

One of the Fighting Saints newest members, Andrei Buyalsky, has announced his commitment to play collegiate hockey at Vermont. Less than three months since joining the Saints, Buyalsky has already cemented himself as a key player and has earned the commitment.

“Andrei has impressed everyone with his on-ice ability since the moment he arrived,” said head coach Oliver David. “he has also been a great peer role model in regard to setting an example on how to do things the right way. It’s pretty cool he’s decided to continue his development at the NCAA level. He will do whatever it takes to help Vermont and leave there one day with a professional opportunity.”

Buyalsky started with the Saints during the middle of December, coming to the USHL after playing in Kazakhstan for the past few seasons. With Dubuque, he has been one of the keys to the team building a 7-3 record over their last 10 games.

Buyalsky has 11 points in 12 games on three goals and eight assists. His speed has been a difference maker for Dubuque and he continues to be one of the top scoring threats since joining the Saints lineup.
