Rensselaer has added transfer Mike Gornall to the roster.
The forward comes to the Engineers from North Dakota, where he spent the previous two seasons.
Due to NCAA regulations, he is ineligible to play this season, but is allowed to practice with the team.
“Mike is a hard-nosed player who brings a lot of energy to the rink every day,” said RPI coach Dave Smith in a news release. “He was a top recruit coming out of juniors and has valuable NCAA tournament experience.”
A sophomore out of Irwin, Pa., Gornall appeared in 17 games for the Fighting Hawks last season, netting two goals and an assist for three points. One of his tallies was a game-winner and he was a minus-2 with four minor penalties for eight minutes.
Gornall played in three games at UND in 2015-16, scoring one goal with a plus-1 rating and two PIMs.
