Vermont sophomore Polesello leaves team, joins OHL’s Frontenacs

Vermont sophomore forward Robert Polesello has left Vermont to play major junior hockey with the Kingston Frontenacs of the Ontario Hockey League.

“I really don’t have anything else to say except to wish Robert and his family all the best in his quest to play for Kingston and we thank him for his time here at the University of Vermont,” Catamounts’ coach Kevin Sneddon told the Burlington Free Press. “You never like to see a player leave your program, especially at the halfway point of a term. It can be a little disruptive, but we’ve said all along the strength of this team right now is in its depth and what it means is that when one door closes, another door opens for somebody else to step up.”

Polesello was third in team scoring for UVM with two goals and two assists in five games this season. In his career, Polesello recorded seven goals and 17 points in 40 games.
