Columbus - August 17, 2014 - Columbus Blue Jackets prospect Sonny Milano will play in the Ontario Hockey League this season rather than at Boston College, the NHL team said via Twitter on Saturday.

The 18-year-old forward will play for the Plymouth Whalers.

Milano, the 16th pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, attended United States World Junior evaluation camp in early August. There he said he planned to attend Boston College.

He is eligible to sign an entry-level contract with the Blue Jackets.

"Sonny has informed me he will sign a contract with Columbus," Boston College coach Jerry York said via Twitter. "They will dictate his path as he embarks upon his pro career."

Milano had 49 goals and 133 points in two seasons with the United States National Team Development Program. He is ranked No. 4 among Blue Jackets prospects by NHL.com.

"I love the fact that Sonny has so much fun playing hockey; he's got that passion," Blue Jackets director of amateur scouting Paul Castron said. "He's not only skilled but a tireless player. He's obviously more offensive than defensive, but loves the game and leaves it all out on the ice."

The Columbus Dispatch reports Milano could attend prospect camp in Traverse City, Mich., in September.
