Liam Pecararo has not played a college hockey game since February 7, 2015. The former Maine forward will have to wait until after the first semester to change that.
Pecararo, who played for Waterloo in the USHL last season, was caught up in a NCAA transfer snafu that will prevent him from enrolling at Northeastern until the second semester.
The Canton, Mass. native scored three goals and six assists as a freshman at Maine before opting to transfer. He had 24 goals and 51 assists in 66 USHL games a year ago, including the playoffs.
Pecararo is a gifted offensive player whose creativity and ability to generate offense with his hands and vision will certainly be an asset to the Huskies in the second half.
Pecararo should be eligible to play in the Huskies’ game against Clarkson on Dec. 30. Northeastern, the defending Hockey East Tournament Champion, will open up its 2016-17 season with an exhibition game against Acadia on October 1 at 7 p.m. at Matthews Arena.
