https://merrimackathletics.com/news/2018/7/10/mens-ice-hockey-2018-19-season-tickets-on-sale.aspxForward Griff Jeszka has transferred to Merrimack after spending his first two seasons at Massachusetts.

Jeszka was Greg Carvel‘s first recruit when he took over the UMass program in 2016; it’s likely he will have to sit out a transfer year before becoming eligible (he played for the Minutemen in 12 games last season).

Jeszka is a Wisconsin native who broke onto the scene as a freshman in 2016-17, leading all UMass rookies with 12 points (7 goals, 5 assists) in 33 games, which was also fifth on the team. Prior to joining UMass, Jeszka appeared in 59 games for the Brookings Blizzard (NAHL) in 2015-16, finishing with 48 points (15 goals, 33 assists) in 59 games which led the team in scoring.

Over his junior and early-NCAA career, Jeszka has been especially good on the faceoff dot.

In total, Jeszka appeared in 45 NCAA games for UMass and had 10 goals and six assists.
