Defenseman Josh Couturier has joined Massachusetts as a transfer from Boston College.
Couturier will sit out the 2016-17 campaign, per NCAA transfer rules.
“Josh is a big defenseman that plays a rugged style,” said UMass coach Greg Carvel in a statement. “He is very solid defensively, has a heavy shot and skates well for his size.”
Last season with the Eagles, Couturier tallied two goals and four assists in 33 games and finished with a plus-14 rating.
