Shaun Houk (D) commits to Utah Men’s Division 1 Hockey

University of Utah Men’s Division 1 Hockey has received a commitment from Defenseman Shaun Houk for the upcoming 2022-23 season.

Shaun was born in Tampa, Florida, where he began learning to skate and play hockey at 4 years old. With over 10 years of competitive hockey in Florida for the Florida Everblades, Florida Eels, Orlando Knights and Tampa Scorpions, his family moved to North Carolina, where he started his first Junior hockey season.
As a rookie in the USPHL, and the third youngest in the league, he was awarded USPHL Player of the Month and selected to the USPHL Defensive All-Star team for the 2018-19 season after achieving .5 points per game and strongly impacting the defensive core for the Carolina Eagles
Later on, Houk transitioned into virtual high school for his final 2 years while continuing the next 3 years of his junior career with the Philadelphia Revolution in the EHL, Richmond Generals in USPHL, and finished with the Philadelphia Little Flyers back in the EHL and making a run in the Frozen Finals
When he is home during the summers, he works at a local country club and also as an auto detailing technician. He tries to golf as much as he can, while enjoying fishing and spending time outdoors. 

“Houk will be a big addition to our defensive core. He is very calm with the puck and sees the ice extremely well. His ability to move the puck up the ice will be critical for us next year. He brings high hockey IQ that will undoubtedly translate to success. We are very excited to have Shaun join Utah hockey,” Men’s Division 1 Head Coach Morgan Feenie said.

Houk plans to study Nursing at the U.

Utah Hockey would like to welcome Shaun and wish him the absolute best in the upcoming season!
