College Hockey:
UMass Adds Defenseman

— Defenseman Nick Kuiper has been added to the UMass-Amherst roster and is expected to play this weekend.

Kuiper (6-foot-2, 185 pounds) was in his second year of playing for the Hawkesbury Hawks in the Central Junior A Hockey League in eastern Ontario. He played 32 games and scored seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points.

He is currently enrolled in the school and is considered a freshman both academically and athletically.

“Nick is going to be a good addition to our team,” said Cahoon of the 18-year-old. “He skates real well and has great hockey sense. It is going to be a big adjustment for him both physically and mentally.

“He will help to add some depth and quickness to our defense.”
