BOSTON, MA -- Saturday afternoon a team of 20 Eastern Hockey League (EHL) all-stars traveled to the campus of Umass Boston for an exhibition game against the Beacons. This will mark the first time that an EHL team has taken on an NCAA program. The EHL roster is comprised of at least 1 player from all 16 teams. 

"This is an excellent opportunity for our league," said Mark Kumpel, the EHL's Director of Hockey Operations. "The Beacons have always recruited strongly from the EHL, so this will give our players a great chance to see where they need to get to in order to play at the next level."

The Connecticut Oilers selection #6 defenseman Ian Wallgren, had a very strong game and showed that his poise and smarts with the puck can transition into the NCAA level. With 1 minute and 45 seconds left in the game, Ian shot a one-timer from the blue line in hopes of tying the game but unfortunately rang off the post.  

League president, Mark Kumpel spoke highly of Wallgren after the game and thought he had a very strong showing against such an offensive team in NCAA Division III Umass - Boston Beacons. 

Umass Boston has developed into one of the top Division III programs in the country, in large part, after reaching their first ever Frozen Four a couple seasons ago. As Kumpel mentioned the Beacons have always recruited players from the EHL, and deservedly so, they were featured as an EHL Pipeline of the Week a couple months ago.
