Men's Hockey: van Riemsdyk makes jump to the pros
Junior defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk signed a two-year contract with the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday. Van Riemsdyk, the brother of former Wildcat and Toronto Maple Leaf James van Riemsdyk, becomes the newest Wildcat to enter the NHL ranks.
In his three-year career at UNH, van Riemsdyk posted 75 points (16 g, 59a) in 102 career games.
Despite suffering a season-ending injury against Union on Jan. 18, van Riemsdyk still managed to finish sixth on the team in both assists (19) and points (23), as well posting a +16 rating on the year. Van Riemsdyk notched a point in 16 of his 26 games this season.
In 2012-13, van Riemsdyk was selected as First Team All-Hockey East, posting 8g and 25a on the season. Van Riemsdyk was the highest scoring defenseman in Hockey East that year, being the only blue liner ranked in the Top 20 (No. 15).
