Sophomore forward Evan Richardson has left the Boston College hockey program to pursue other endeavors in the sport. Richardson recorded two goals in four games played this season. He scored the lone Eagle goal in a 6-1 loss @ the University of Minnesota and had one of 11 Eagle tallies in a 11-0 win vs Army.
Obviously, we wish Evan the best of luck in the next chapter of hockey career. I think he can certainly play at the Hockey East level, whether he does that or not is yet to be determined. As for the team, I am pretty convinced that Evan would have been an everyday player this year. As of now the staff still has just three forwards coming in next year but I would expect that to change over the summer.
Update- Evan will go down to Storrs and play with Coach Cav. Congrats !
