Miami sophomore defenseman Trevor Hamilton has left the team and play the remainder of the year in junior hockey, according to this report from WCPO in Cincinnati.
Hamilton had previously been on the college list for the Fargo Force of the USHL. But the Force traded Hamilton's rights to the Muskegon Lumberjacks along with a 6th round Phase I draft pick for a 3rd round Phase I pick and a first round Phase II pick.
Hamilton skated in 30 games for the RedHawks last season as a freshman coming out of the NTDP program. He registered five assists in those 30 games, though three of those points came in his first two games of the season. This year, Hamilton dressed in Miami's first game of the season against Bowling Green, but has not played since. That one game ends up being costly for Hamilton, because it means he won't be eligible for a redshirt this year, and won't be able to play until the second semester of next season, and would only have a year-and-a-half of eligibility left.
