Former Quinnipiac Men's Ice Hockey Stand-Out Bryce Van Brabant Featured In Calgary Herald

Former Quinnipiac University men's ice hockey stand-out Bryce Van Brabant was featured in the Calgary Herald on Monday, July 7. 

The article, by Scott Cruickshank, highlights Van Brabant's return to Quinnipiac to complete his degree in International Business. Van Brabant decided to skip his final year of elibility at Quinnipiac to become the first student-athlete in Quinnipiac history to play in a NHL game. Van Brabant suited up for the Flames in the week following the Bobcats' final game of his junior year in 2013-14.   

The 6-3, 205 lbs. power forward entered his third year on campus with nine goals and 11 assists for his career. This past season, Van Brabant more-than-doubled his career goals total, potting 15 markers to go with seven assists for 22 points. He also ranked fifth in NCAA Division I men's ice hockey with 10 power play goals. Van Brabant finishes with 24 goals and 18 assists for 42 points in 115 career games.

Van Brabant also helped in solidifying Quinnipiac as a Top-10 college hockey power that won 74 games over the last three seasons, while the Bobcats earned at-large bids in each of the last two seasons. Last year's team also advanced to the National Championship game and captured the Cleary Cup for the ECAC Hockey Regular-Season Championship.
