Also making his professional debut was former Bruin and Dunn’s collegiate teammate, Trevor Boyd (Bruins ’14-15). Boyd debuted with the Kalamazoo Wings over the weekend who went 1-2 in Boyd’s three games with the club.
NCAA DI: Jacob Paganelli (Bruins ’15-16) finished out his sophomore season with a slight improvement over his freshman year. The Verona, NJ, native netted one goal and added nine assists in his 30 games played for the Princeton Tigers this season. He ups his points total by two over his freshman season. Despite winning the ECAC Championship last season as a #7 seed, the Tigers were bounced from the conference tournament this year in the first-round by the Brown Bears.
Also getting knocked out of the post-season in the first round was Justin Misiak (Bruins ’15-17). His Michigan Tech Huskies lost two first-round matchups to Bowling Green in a best of three contest in this year’s ACHA Tournament. Misiak finished with a strong season missing only one of the team’s 38 total games and was tied for 5th on the team in goals with six. The South Shores, MI, native will return for a Junior season with the Huskies for 2019-20.
