A bit of good news on the hockey front, as today the program made the official announcement that defenseman Brian Dumoulin and winger Chris Kreider will return for their junior seasons. We've known for a few weeks now that Dumoulin was set to return and the New York Post tipped us to how Kreider was leaning just last week, but the school's announcement makes it a bit more official.

Dumoulin is a second round draft pick of the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, while Kreider was the 19th overall pick of the New York Rangers in the same year.

The immediate effect is that it gives a much needed boost to the Eagles' offense next season. With Brian Gibbons and Joe Whitney graduating, and Cam Atkinson and Jimmy Hayes turning pro, the Eagles have already lost over 40 percent of their scoring from this season (167 of 408 total points).

Dumoulin returns as the leading returning scorer, scoring 3 goals and 30 assists in 37 games this season. Kreider netted 24 points (11 goals, 13 assists) in 32 games this year.
