Born 27 April 1987, he’s 172cm and 67kg.
28GP 31G+9A=40P and 10PIM in the latest 2008-09 college hockey season in the Kanto League division 1 (highest level of college hockey in Japan).
Stats from 2007-08 are missing, but in 2006-07 he put up a very impressive 13GP 12+17=29 as a rookie freshman.
He’s currently in his final year of university as a 4th year student and the 2009-10 season will be his last one with Waseda University.
He also played in the latest world championships on the senior men’s team with a respectable 2+1=3P in 5GP despite not being used prominently (probably).

Waseda University captain and Japanese national team player Shuhei Kuji has been invited to the New York Islanders Prospects Camp. This is a big deal, as players with NHL experience such as Josh Bailey and top draft picks like John Tavares (can’t get any more top prospect than this) will also be participating. No doubt this will provide valuable experience for Kuji to play against superior competition and hopefully make some strides in his game, and maybe even get drafted in the future (though the chances of this is very slim).
Incidentally, Kuji was the only non-Toyo University player selected on to the 2009 Kanto University Championship All Star Team earlier in the year.
