Hobey Baker Award finalist Jack Dugan of Providence has agreed to join the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights.
The Pittsburgh native was selected by the Golden Knights with the 142nd pick during the fifth round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to continue to play a key role in the development of Jack Dugan as both a hockey player and as a young man within our organization,” said Knights general manager Kelly McCrimmon. “Jack took significant steps in his growth over the past two seasons as one of the best all-around players in college hockey, and has proven that he is ready for the next challenge in his young career.”
Dugas was a sophomore this past season, and put up 10 goals and 52 points in 34 games. The forward also led all NCAA skaters in assists, points per game (1.53), assists per game (1.24), power-play points (22) and even-strength points (30).
As a freshman, Dugan ranked second on the team with 39 points in 41 games and helped lead the Friars to a 2019 Frozen Four appearance.
