College Hockey:
Sophomore Manno ‘not content with role,’ leaves Northeastern

Northeastern announced Friday that sophomore forward Joseph Manno has decided to leave the program, becoming the second player in three weeks to do so.

Freshman Cam Darcy left the school last month.

“After discussions with Joe, it became apparent he was not content with his role on the team and he decided to pursue other options,” Northeastern coach Jim Madigan said in a statement. “We wish him well on his future.”

The Montreal native skated in 46 career games for the Huskies, recording four goals and 12 points.

    So, 2 left school, one has decommitted and from another article on CHN:

    “In Dubuque, Manno will play alongside three Northeastern recruits, Michael Szmatula, Matt Benning and John Stevens.”

    I can’t imagine Manno is going to say a whole lot of good about the program. What the heck is going on at NU? Sounds like things may only get worse.

      The program has been going in the wrong direction for a while. The highlight for this season will be their win over BC.

    This just does it!! 3 players in total have left NU and One decommitted!!! What is going on with the Hockey program at NU? I tell you What! Madigan HAS TO GO!! I cannot wait until this nightmare of a season is over. The NU Huskies should be at least in the top 5 programs in HE. Can we please get a real coach! Someone who knows at least how to keep players motivated. I said it before and I say it again “FIRE COACH MADIGAN”
