Wall Will Return for Senior Year at UML
LOWELL -- Goaltender Tyler Wall will return for his senior season at UMass Lowell, head coach Norm Bazin has confirmed.
The Leamington, Ont., native has won 40 games during his college career. He was a sixth-round draft pick of the New York Rangers in 2016. Wall won a school-record 26 games as a freshman and was an overtime goal by Notre Dame from leading the River Hawks to the Frozen Four.
After a sophomore slump, Wall rebounded with a strong junior season. He went 11-7-3 with a 2.09 goals against average and a .921 save percentage.
A mechanical engineering major, Wall is a top-notch student.
Bazin also said UML’s incoming freshman class will feature at least five players.
The class will consist of:
* Forward Matthew Brown, Wood Ridge, N.J., of Des Moines of the USHL.
* Forward Brian Chambers, Weymouth, of Sioux Falls of the USHL.
* Goaltender Logan Neaton, Brighton, Mich., of Prince George of the BCHL.
* Defenseman Jordan Schulting, Penticton, B.C., of Coquitlam of the BCHL.
* Forward Blake Wells, Blackie, Alb., of Okotoks of the AJHL.
Bazin said the class will likely consist of one or two more players.
Two of UML’s five seniors have begun their professional careers. Forward Ryan Dmowski has joined Hartford of the AHL and forward Nick Master will play for Maine of the ECHL.
