The Boston College commit for 2022 comes from Avon Old Farms School in Connecticut, where he had a goal and four assists in nine games in 2019-20.

Siedem is back at Avon this season but hasn’t played any games due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He was a third-round pick of the Central Illinois Flying Aces in the 2018 US Hockey League Futures Draft.
