ST. PAUL -- Reid Boucher has known for a while that he'd eventually lace up the skates for Michigan State. On Saturday, he had a pretty good idea that the Devils were interested in him, too.

New Jersey took the scoring winger in the fourth round, 99th overall, at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

"It was a thrill," said the Lansing, Mich., native. "I've been waiting for a while, and I was happy to finally hear it."

Boucher, who measures 5-10, 192, met with the Devils on Wednesday. He tallied 24 goals, 19 assists for 43 points with the U.S. Under-18 Team.

"They were a team in mind that I thought might take me," he said of New Jersey.

Describing his style of play, Boucher said, "I'm a small forward, a goal scorer, I play physical a little bit."

He'll be taking that skill to Michigan State for 2012-13, following his final year of high school. He committed to the Spartans three years ago when he was only 15.

"I'm actually 15 minutes from campus and every single person in my family went there," he said. "I grew up watching them. It's just really where I wanted to go."

Whether it's the Spartans or the Devils, Boucher knows what he does best.

"I hope I can help them out by scoring some goals and all that stuff," he said. "I'm just going to try to do the best I can to try and help them out."
