Miami forward Jimmy Mullin missed all of last season due to injury. At the time, it was expected that he would use his redshirt year and return to Miami next season for his final year of eligibility. Instead, Mullin has transferred to Minnesota State, and thanks to an NCAA stipulation, will be eligible to skate for the Mavericks next season, reported Shane Frederick of the Mankato Free Press.
Mullin graduated from Miami this past spring and with one year of eligibility remaining, was able to take advantage of an NCAA stipulation that allows graduated student-athletes to transfer without penalty if they enroll in graduate school at another school. The exception is used relatively infrequently in college hockey, though Jared Larson used the rule to transfer to Alaska-Fairbanks from Minnesota for his final two years of eligibility.
Mullin scored 47 points in 94 career games played for Miami and was used in a variety roles. He should provide depth and experience to Minnesota State's line-up next season.
