Mass.-Lowell goaltender Nevin Hamilton has been cleared of a drug-possession charge stemming from his July 24 arrest in Ashland, Mass.
Hamilton, 24, had been charged with possession of a Class B substance.
“Nevin was in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Lowell coach Blaise MacDonald said in a news release. “Fortunately, justice has prevailed and he has been exonerated of all charges.”
Hamilton is entering his senior season at Lowell. A criminal justice major, he 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.
