BC Adds Two Players for 2015-16
Seventh-ranked Boston College has added two players who are expected to be in the lineup this weekend for a home-and-home Hockey East series with No. 3 Providence College.
Goaltender Ian Milosz and defenseman Michael Kim will skate for the Eagles in the second half of the 2016-16 campaign, after playing for the Boston Jr. Bruins of the of the United States Premiere Hockey League (USPHL).
According to bceagles.com, the 6-foot-7 Milosz, who hails from North Grafton, Mass., has played in 17 games this season for the Jr. Bruins, with a 2.20 goals against average and a .924 save percentage. He will wear No. 29 for BC.
Kim, a six-foot, 185-pound defenseman from Toronto, tallied five goals and 22 assists for the Jr. Bruins this winter. He actually made his collegiate debut wearing No. 27 in BC's last game to date, a 2-1 loss to Providence on Dec. 29 in the Florida College Hockey Classic consolation game.
Both players were expected to matriculate with the rest of BC's Class of 2020 this fall, but were added to the roster now to strengthen a lineup that ostensibly features injuries to key players.
BC (13-4-1) hosts Providence (13-1-3) tomorrow night at Kelley Rink at 7 p.m. in Chestnut Hill, before visiting Schneider Arena on Saturday evening for the rematch.
