Merrimack forward Patrick Kramer will return for a fifth season, according to Merrimack men’s hockey coach Scott Borek.
Kramer, 23, had five points in nine games this past season before getting hurt in early November. After missing the final 25 games of the season, he became eligible for a medical redshirt under NCAA rules and gained a fifth year of eligibility.
Kramer has appeared in 81 games in his career, scoring 18 points (7 goals, 11 assists).
“The injury was unfortunate for Patrick, which knocked him out for the season, but it gave him the opportunity to come back next year,” said Merrimack head coach Scott Borek on our latest TMR Podcast. “That gives us a really experienced player, who has played a lot of big minutes, at the center position.
“It’s a real positive that he decided to come back. He was playing some of his best hockey right before he got hurt and we’re fortunate that we’ll have him for another year.”
