Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Ryan Segalla will not return to the University of Connecticut hockey team for his senior season.
The Rockland, Mass. native was a fourth round selection of the Penguins in the 2013 NHL Draft out of Salisbury School, a perennial New England prep hockey powerhouse.
Segalla was a mainstay in the Huskies’ lineup over his first two seasons, but found his way into head coach Mike Cavanaugh’s doghouse as a junior. He played in only 21 games in 2015-16, some at forward.
Segalla’s next step is unclear, but he won’t be playing in a UConn uniform again. He concludes his Huskies’ career with three goals and 18 assists in 86 games.
