According to our own Andy Johnson and Ken Schott of the Daily Gazette in Schenectady, New York, Union junior goaltender Troy Grosenick will forego his senior season to sign a professional contract with the San Jose Sharks.
He is the third undrafted free agent reported Friday to sign with San Jose. Previously, Minnesota State forward Eriah Hayes and Colorado College forward Rylan Schwartz signed following the expiration of their college eligibility.
After making a single start his freshman year, Grosenick more than made up for it his last two years. Troy posted 5 shutouts as a sophomore and had a 1.65 GAA and .936 save percentage. He was named a Hobey Baker finalist for his individual efforts. Team-wise, Grosenick led the Dutchmen to their first-ever Frozen Four appearance.
This past season wasn't as good individually - Grosenick finished with a 2.12 GAA and .926 save percentage - yet Union was successful as a team. They came on strong towards the end of the season and won their second straight ECAC conference tournament title. Although the Dutchmen routed Boston College 5-1, they fell to conference rival Quinnipiac in the East Region final.
