Miami’s Matt Joyaux bolts school for USHL’s Omaha Lancers

Miami sophomore defenseman Matt Joyaux has left school and joined the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League.

RedHawks’ coach Enrico Blasi tweeted the announcement on Friday.

Joyaux tallied two goals and seven points as a freshman in 2013-14, but had played just four games this season, registering one assist.

Joyaux’s brother, Chris, is a junior blueliner with the RedHawks and will remain with Miami.
