Graduating Stars defenseman Nolan Arbuckle has chosen to attend Trine University in Indiana beginning in the fall. Nolan played 89 games for the Stars over two seasons accumulating 43 points from the blueline.
Trine University, formerly known as Tri-State University, is a private, non-profit, post-secondary institution located in Angola, Indiana. The school was founded in 1884, and offers degrees in the arts and sciences, business, education and engineering. Their Men’s Ice Hockey Program will compete at the NCAA Division III level in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association.
“Nolan was one of our best blueliners over the past two seasons. Due to his work ethic and willingness to broaden his skill set, he improved greatly and played in every situation for us. Nolan will take full advantage of the resources available to him at Trine and will make Coach Todd’s inaugural team. Nolan is a quiet leader whom are younger players looked up to. He plays mean and structured without the puck and moves the puck up ice when he has it. Nolan is a coaches dream – practices hard and plays even harder, zero maintenance, and a great teammate. We wish him the best.” – Head Coach Darryl Green
