Recruiting: UConn signs 2021 forward Chase Bradley

The Huskies flip another player from Northeastern.

UConn added a new player to its class of 2021, announcing forward Chase Bradley has signed his National Letter of Intent to the school:

Listed at 6 feet, 190 pounds with a left-handed shot, Bradley was selected in the seventh round (203 overall) by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2020 NHL Draft.

He’s a native of St. Louis and currently plays for the Sioux City Musketeers of the USHL with fellow UConn commit Tabor Heaslip. Bradley has three assists in three games this season but racked up seven goals and 12 assists in 34 games for the USHL’s Omaha Lancers last year.

Bradley is an extremely competitive player, so much so that in high school, he sometimes needed to be separated from his older brother Connor during practice because the two would get at each other.

The Huskies have officially signed four players in their class of 2021: Bradley, Hanley and Tverberg for forwards as well as goaltender Logan Terness. The three forwards have all flipped to UConn from previous commitments — Bradley and Hanley from Northeastern and Tverberg from Harvard.

The Huskies have fourth other commits that are projected to come to Storrs as part of the 2021 class: Forwards Mark D’Agostino, Heaslip and Brandon Santa Juana and defenseman Jack Pascucci.

Keep an eye out for more information about Bradley on The UConn Blog soon. We’ll also get our recruiting database up on Patreon this week.
