ECHL: As always, we start things off in the professional ranks looking at some former Bruins who get paid to play the game. This week, we look at Lucas Kohls (Bruins ’13-14). Following a four year career at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Kohls made his professional debut with the Wheeling Nailers at the end of last season. It was with Wheeling where he would earn his first professional goal and point at the end of 18-19. He stuck around Wheeling for the first couple months of the 19-20 season where he added three assists in four games, before signing a standard player contract with the Orlando Solar Bears.
NCAA DI: Travis Kothenbeutel (Bruins ’14-18) rolls on in his sophomore season at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. In his second season, the forward is on pace to break his point-total from a season ago. Through just 15 games, Kothenbeutel has four points, only one fewer than a season ago.
Playing for Colgate, is former Bruin Anthony Stark (Bruins ’17-18). Stark, a freshman, has played in 20 games for CU and logged two points. As a freshman and a defenseman, that’s a solid start to a collegiate career for the youngster.
NCAA DIII: Justin Brandt (Bruins ’17-18) is also in his sophomore season at the collegiate level. Playing for Tufts University, the forward has already topped his goal total from his freshman season in 33% less games. Now with four total goals, besting 18-19 by one, Brandt is now trying to eclipse his total points from last season. Brandt only needs three more points to tie his numbers from a year ago, and will likely hit that mark this season as the Tufts Jumbos are about halfway through their schedule.
