Nolan Zajac- Toledo Wallaye

In his first pro season with the Toledo Wallaye, Nolan Zajac registered his first pro goal over the weekend. Zajac has already chalked up 5 assists in the young ECHL season, and now has his first goal. Zajac played the last 4 years at the University of Denver where we picked up 95 points in his four year career. Zajac had a PTO with the Minnesota Wild this summer and will be looking to get the call to their affiliate, the Iowa Wild.

Another milestone first goal was scorded over the weekend this time courtesy of Tyler Penner from Colgate University in the ECAC. Penner who is in his first year as a freshman finished up his junior career with the Steinbach Pistons last season. Penner had 58 points (23 goals, 35 assists) last season and will look to bring some of that goal scoring touch to the NCAA this season.

Kate picked up 3 assists in Quinnipiac's win over Brown University. MacKenzie was a redshirt last season for the Bobcats and this her freshman year has been a success so far.
