Merrimack junior defenseman Jeff Solow informed the Merrimack coaching staff over the weekend that he was leaving the program.
Solow, 22, appeared in 10 games this season on the blue line and didn’t register a point along with four penalty minutes. Solow, who joined the Merrimack roster in the middle of the 2016-17 season, appeared in 13 games over his three seasons. Solow’s last appearance for the Warriors was in Friday night’s 2-1 overtime loss at New Hampshire.
Solow appeared in three games over the second half of the season his freshman season and did not see action as a sophomore. Prior to joining the Warriors, Solow finished his NAHL career with 50 points in 97 career games (13g, 37a)
Solow’s departure, along with the departure of Simon Loof last month, leaves the Warriors with just six defensemen on the roster for the rest of the season. Solow’s junior eligibility has expired but it’s possible he could look into transfer options. If he transfers to another Division I school he would be required to sit out a transfer season, however if he transfers to a Division III program he would be eligible to play immediately.
