Durham, NH -- University of New Hampshire junior defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk, one of the top college free agents, injured his left leg in the first period of his team's game against Union College on Saturday night. The Middletown, NJ native is the brother of Toronto Maple Leafs and USA Olympic team member James van Riemsdyk.

van Riemsdyk has four goals and 19 assists in 25 games played this season, good for third on the Wildcats team, but leads Hockey East in scoring among defensemen.

The play occurred late in the first period when van Riemsdyk was attempting to bring the puck into the Union zone. He fell awkwardly along the left boards. The play went down towards the other end with the Dutchmen getting a two-on-one before the play was whistled dead.
