Former University of Vermont forward Kyle Mountain has a new home in Omaha. The Bryn Mawr, Pa. native has transferred to Nebraska-Omaha after three seasons on Kevin Sneddon's team at UVM.
Mountain played in 43 games over his three-year career in Burlington, compiling two goals and five assists. He did not see game action in 2014-15.
There are conflicting reports regarding his eligibility, but if he graduated from UVM, he would be eligible immediately if he could enroll in a graduate program at UNO that was not offered in Burlington. However, a UVM source indicated that he did not graduate from that school.
According to a source, Mountain is enrolled at UNO, but is not guaranteed to make the team. He will have to tryout and get the final nod from Dean Blais and the Maverick coaching staff before officially joining the program.
