Seacoast Spartans (EHL) goaltender Nevin Tardif has joined Worcester State for the second half of the 2019-20 season.

The native of Dunstable, Mass., won five games between the pipes in the first half of the year as he helped the Spartans get off to a solid start in their inaugural season in the EHL.

“It has been great having Nevin in net for us this season,” said Spartans coach Brett Tryder in a statement. “He has proven to be one of the top goaltenders in our league and I am sure that Worcester State will be very pleased with their decision to bring Nevin in. Nevin is a very hard worker and his dedication to the game will be a huge asset moving forward.”

“Getting to know Coach Tryder has been instrumental to me getting the opportunity to play at Worcester State,” added Tardif. “Coach Tryder wants nothing but the best for us and he shows it everyday at practice and on game days. Without Seacoast and what it and the EHL has provided me, I am not sure that I would have reached my goal of playing college hockey.”
