Colgate freshman forward Adam Dauda was expected to join the Raiders at the start of the season, but deferred his enrollment for health reasons.
Today, the Raiders announced that Dauda has been cleared for all hockey-related activities by school medical personnel, and will immediately join the team. Dauda will begin classes when Colgate's next semester starts January 18th and is eligible to play in Colgate's game tomorrow against Brown.
In a press release from the school, Dauda said:
"I am extremely excited to return to Colgate. It's almost the exact opposite feeling of coming in August when I was nervous and scared as to what would happen because I was hurt and I didn't really know what was wrong. Now I am feeling good and I don't think I could be any more thrilled to arrive. I have been working hard the past couple months to get in ever better shape than I was last season. Hopefully I can make an impact as soon as I come into Colgate."
Dauda scored 67 points in 50 games for the Pembroke Lumber Kings of the CCHL last season, and should be a welcome addition to a Colgate team that ranks 39th nationally in goals per game.
