Boston College freshman forward Danny Weight announced on Tuesday that he is transferring to Colorado College for next season.
Very excited to announce that I will be joining @CC_Hockey1 next season. Thanks to BC for the memories and friendships made this year. With that said, I am thrilled for this new opportunity and can’t wait to get out west this fall! #GoTigers pic.twitter.com/LqxIjmLSq9— Danny Weight (@dannyweight) May 11, 2021
Weight spent most of his 19 games this past season on the fourth line, scoring one goal and one assist for a total of two points. Prior to this season, he played for the Penticton Vees of the BCHL after his U18 year at the NTDP, scoring 60 points in 58 games. He is likely transferring to gain more ice time and regain that scoring touch that was prevalent before this year.
Colorado struggled this past season, going 4-17-2 overall, although they did manage to beat Minnesota-Duluth twice. Their other wins came against Denver and Miami of Ohio.
With Colorado College having hired a new coaching staff for the upcoming year, Weight will likely be able to carve out a bigger role for himself than he would have had at BC.
We wish Danny the best of luck!
