After getting the verbal commitment of a future goaltender earlier this month, the Huskies earned the verbal commitment of a future blue liner in late November, when defenseman Garrett Frazer posted on his social media that he will be playing his college hockey on Huntington Avenue.
Frazer is a 6-foot, 178 pound right handed shot who can play both the right and left defense positions. He hails from Haymarket, Virginia, and relocated to Michigan where he subsequently played for the esteemed HoneyBaked Hockey Club out of Detroit. He played for HoneyBaked at the 15U and 16U levels, even captaining for the 15U team one season. He put up 70 points across two seasons with Honeybaked before joining the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the United States Hockey League as a 16 year old in the 2022-23 season, where he played 11 games. This season he is playing with the Janesville Jets of the North American Hockey League, where he has 6 points (1 goal) in 22 games. He is also a veteran of the USA Hockey Selects 15 and Selects 17 camps.
Frazer is characterized by his impeccable work ethic, known as one of the hardest workers on the team. Called a great teammate, he is intense on the ice, a good puck mover and can defend his own zone responsibly, and is expected to continue to grow. Would not be a shock if he makes it back into the USHL next season, possibly with Muskegon again considering his history with them.
We project Frazer to arrive at Northeastern in 2025 after a year of juniors but given his age there is a chance the he arrives in 2026 depending on how the next year and a half of development progress.
Congratulations to Garrett on his commitment to Northeastern!
As always, go Huskies!
