Montclair Kimberly Academy’s Nicholas Sykora has given a verbal commitment to play Division I hockey for the reigning NCAA champs. Sykora will take the ice for the Quinnipiac Bobcats who won their first national title in 2023. Sykora played for MKA as a sophomore in addition to elite junior hockey for the Long Island Gulls and he was dominant with 33 goals and 17 points in just 16 games helping his school win the Kelly Cup. Sykora is the son of former New Jersey Devil and two-time Stanley Cup champion Petr Sykora. Nicholas was an 8th round pick by the Omaha Lancers in the USHL, a springboard to college hockey and beyond.
