Former Merrimack forward Cole McBride announced on Twitter that he’s transferring to Alaska Anchorage.

“Excited to announce my commitment to to continue my education and college hockey career

McBride was among seven players released from the Warriors roster earlier this month. If McBride can accelerate his studies and graduate before the end of the summer semester, he’ll be able to enter UAA as a graduate transfer and play immediately, rather than sitting for a transfer year.

The former Camrose Kodiak appeared in 24 games for the Warriors this past season, scoring one goal and adding one assist. In 56 career games for the Warriors, McBride scored six goals and added seven assists.

McBride can add some scoring to a UAA squad that struggled this season, going 3-28-3 and averaged 1.18 goals per game. McBride led the Kodiaks in scoring in 2016 with 66 points and he was ranked 13th in the league in scoring that season. McBride had to sit out the 2016-17 season (his freshman year) due to an NCAA eligibility issue.

However, because he was forced to sit for that season, it’s possible the NCAA could award him an extra year of eligibility and he could have two seasons to play for UAA.
