Whalers' 2006 draft pick opts for Harvard

Ryan Grimshaw, a 1990-born defenseman, has committed to Harvard for the 2008 season, according to the U.S. Hockey Report.

Grimshaw, from Rochester, N.Y., spent this past season in Ann Arbor playing with the U.S. National Team Development Program.

Prior to moving to Ann Arbor, Grimshaw spent a season prepping at Salisbury Prep, where he played for Harvard coach Ted Donato's brother, Dan (who recently resigned from Salisbury). Grimshaw reportedly selected Harvard over Cornell, Boston University, Michigan and RPI.

Grimshaw was the Plymouth Whalers' 15th-round pick (293rd overall) in the 2006 OHL Priority Selection.
