UMass-Lowell’s Hamilton Faces Drug Charge After Arrest

Massachusetts-Lowell goaltender Nevin Hamilton was arrested last Friday in Ashland, Mass., on a drug possession charge, according to published reports.

Hamilton, 24, was charged with possession of a Class B substance, the MetroWest Daily News reported.

A Lowell spokesperson confirmed to the New England Hockey Journal that the arrested party was a student at the school.

Class B substances include cocaine, opium and methamphetamines, but there was no indication which drug Hamilton’s charge involved.

Hamilton, a criminal justice major, was 10-7-1 with a 2.15 goals against average and a .925 save percentage as a junior last season for the River Hawks.
