June 2022 – Commesso played a total of 28 games with Boston University posting a 0.914 SV% and  a 2.52 GAA. He also played two games in the IIHF WJC-20 before the competition was cancelled due to the Coronavirus concerns. Over the course of the year he has gained a considerable amount of confidence.  His high hockey IQ, above average puck handling skills and quick glove hand will only improve as he gets older. Commesso is considered to have a higher ceiling than Söderblom and when he is NHL ready he will more than likely be the starter. However, do not expect that anytime soon as he is still a few years away. Puneet Sharma

 

December 2020- Commesso is in a battle to make the Team USA roster for the 2021 WJHC. It looks like an uphill battle with Spencer Knight and Dustin Wolf ahead of him, but spectacular play could earn him a spot. Knight and Wolf were both members of the 2020 team. Tony Carr

 

October 2020 – Commesso was drafted 46th overall by the Blackhawks. Commesso is expected to spend at least two years in college before turning pro.  Jokke Nevalainen

 

May 2020 – One of the top netminders available for this year’s draft, Commesso has quietly put together a strong season. He backstopped the U.S. U18 team to an undefeated gold medal win at the 5-Nations tournament in November. He was the best player on the ice for the NTDP U18’s on most nights and rarely got the credit he deserved. He plays with his chest up and his feet set. When he makes a move, it’s with a purpose. He rarely looks like he’s scrambling in his net even when the puck is in a bit of traffic in front of his crease. He plays with a calmness and composure to his game which allows his team to take some chance as they know he is more than capable as their last line of defense. His ability to read the opposition and recognize all of the dangerous options on the ice for the opposition allows him to be square to the puck when he makes his saves. His rebound control could use some improvement, specifically with low shots as he has a bit of a tendency to kick the rebound all over the place. If he can learn to control those rebounds a bit better, his game looks a lot cleaner. Overall, it won’t be a shock if Commesso is the second netminder off the board after Yaroslav Askarov. Tony Ferrari
