Colorado College freshman Labosky leaves Tigers, goes back to USHL

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, Colorado College freshman forward Dan Labosky has left the program.

Labosky appeared in two games for the Tigers and did not record a point.

“Danny decided to leave so he has a chance to play,” CC coach Mike Haviland told the paper. “I wish him nothing but the best.”

The 19-year-old from Edina, Minn., played last season for the USHL’s Tri-City Storm and rejoined the team on Thursday.

“It was ultimately Dan’s decision,” Tri-City coach Jim Hulton said in a news release. “Sometimes when you leave a bad situation and come back to an old situation, you appreciate it a lot more. One of the first things Dan said to me was that he has a big chip on his shoulder and he wants to prove people wrong. Selfishly as a coach, that puts a smile on your face because that’s a built-in incentive for the player and that translates itself down into the team.”
