For the second time in his career, Melfort Mustangs defenceman Tyler Heidt has committed to an American college.

Merrimack College announced on Friday that Heidt committed to the program. He’s the only Canadian so far in Merrimack’s crop of recruits this year, and is expected to join the school this upcoming season.

Heidt was previously committed to Alaska-Anchorage, but according to Merrimack’s Mike McMahon, he withdrew the commitment after the program switched coaches.

His two years so far with the Mustangs have been eventful. Heidt was named to the SJHL All-Rookie Team after scoring seven goals and 24 points in 54 games. Last season, Heidt suffered a shoulder injury in camp and his season was shortened as a result. He just played in nine games, but scored as many points (one goal, eight assists).

Heidt suited up in just nine games last season after suffering a shoulder injury in training camp. He scored nine points, including a goal and eight assists.
