After making his verbal commitment to the UMass Lowell River Hawks a few years ago, forward Tyler Sifferlen has made the decision to de-commit from UMass Lowell and keep his options open.

Sifferlen is currently skating for the Islanders Hockey Club of the U.S. Premier Hockey League (USPHL). He has 17 points (12g, 5a) with 40 penalty minutes over 24 games this season.

The North Andover, Massachusetts native spent the 2014-15 season with the Chicago Steel (USHL). He had a down year compared to the career he had at Malden Catholic over the prior four years. Over 56 games he had only 10 points (7g, 3a) with 52 penalty minutes.
