As hockey season quickly approaches, we’ll be introducing you to each member of BC MIH’s roster. We’re starting out with the veteran players, which for this team means... the juniors. First up: Michael Kim.
Name: Michael Kim
Class Year: Junior
Background: Kim joined BC as a mid-season addition during the 2014-15 season. As a sophomore, he became an important part of BC’s defense and established himself as a solid two-way player. He recorded a respectable 21 points last season, including 5 goals. Perhaps his biggest offensive moment last season was a shorthanded GWG against Northeastern with only 22 seconds remaining in the game. On the defensive side of things, Kim was second on the team with 45 blocks and showed a willingness to fight hard to protect the goal.
2017-18 Outlook: Even if he hadn’t been named one of the 2017-18 captains, Kim would have been expected to be a leader for the defensive players this season. Expect to continue to see him blocking lots of shots and protecting his goalie, but to also take a few more chances on offense. The Eagles lost a lot of high scoring players during the offseason, and everybody will be expected to contribute to the offense this year. Based on the progress Kim has shown over his time at BC, he could be an impact player for this 2017-18 team.
Fun Fact: This summer, Kim attended the Vegas Golden Knights’ first ever development camp.
