After adding a pair of grad transfers from Bowling Green earlier this month, Boston College men’s hockey has picked up another former Falcon, as defenseman Justin Wells announced his transfer decision tonight.

Wells is a 6’4 defenseman who will add some good size and experience to BC’s fairly young defensive group. He is a defensive-defenseman that shouldn’t be expected to put up many points. Wells had a career high 9 points this season, with 2 goals and 7 assists.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing for BC, as the Eagles already have a number of defensemen that can contribute to offense, such as Marshall Warren, Drew Helleson, and Eamon Powell. Having a strong stay-at-home defenseman could be a big plus for a BC team that has been able to rely on above-average goaltending in recent years and is now facing a bit of an unknown situation in net with sophomore Henry Wilder and transfer Eric Dop.

Wells is the son of Jeff Wells, who had a lengthy minor league career after playing for Jerry York at Bowling Green from 1990-1994.
