Former St. Lawrence standout forward Aaron Bogosian has been named the new volunteer assistant coach for the Union College men's hockey program, according to Ken Schott of The Daily Gazette. He replaces John Ronan, who was on the bench for the Dutchmen's NCAA Championship season last year.
The Massena, NY native played minor pro hockey in the AHL and ECHL, including in the Columbus Blue Jackets organization with the Springfield Falcons. A very responsible two-way center, Bogosian had 33 goals and 46 assists in 142 career games with St. Lawrence during his NCAA career. His brother Zach is a former first round draft pick of the Atlanta Thrashers and current defenseman with the Winnipeg Jets.
Union opens up its season as the defending national champions with a home contest against American International on Friday, October 10 at Messa Rink.
