It appears Tyler Boston has had a change of heart.

Boston, who announced last week that he was walking away from hockey to focus on his education, was traded from the Guelph Storm to the Niagara IceDogs on Monday. Guelph received a third-round pick in 2018, along with a conditional fourth-round pick in 2019 and conditional third-round pick in 2020.

The 18-year-old is expected to report to Niagara, where he will be given additional resources to help with his academic goals.

Boston, who went undrafted at the 2015 NHL draft, was second in scoring on the last-place Storm when he made his decision.
