UNH's Trevor van Riemsdyk goes pro with Blackhawks
The Chicago Blackhawks announced on Monday night that they have agreed with van Riemsdyk on a two-year free agent deal that begins at the start of the 2014-15 season. He will forego his final year of collegiate eligibility.
He had four goals and 19 assists for 23 points in 26 games for the Wildcats this year.
Trevor is the younger brother of James van Riemsdyk, who was the No. 2 pick in the 2007 NHL draft and played for UNH for two years before leaving for the Philadelphia Flyers. James now plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs and played for the United States in the Sochi Olympics last month.
"That's always a possibility with a player of that caliber," said UNH coach Dick Umile when asked on Sunday if he was concerned that van Riemsdyk might not be back. "We'll see how that all plays out."
