In total, he helped the Hawks to a 68-35-6 record (.651) which stands as the winningest four-year stretch in team history. In 108 games played he finished with 35 goals and 69 assists (35-69=104).

Prior to College he played prep school hockey at Canterbury School in Connecticut. He will bring a wealth of hockey experience to the Junior Railers organization and his focus will be developing our players both on and off the ice.
