New Potential Wildcat

Another excellent hockey player is looking at the possibility of playing for the University of New Hampshire Wildcats.

Brennan Vargas, of Coon Rapids, Minnesota, playing alongside current Future 'Cat, James vanRiemsdyk, may be considering donning the Blue and White.

Coming from a hockey family, Brennan has a tremendous love of hockey. He is described as more of a finesse player who is very good defensively. At 6'1", 200 lbs. he is billed as having "...good tools offensively,” according to NTDP Under-18 Team coach Ron Rolston. β€œHe is a good playmaker. He makes the guys around him better whenever he has the puck.” I've also found reports from USHR describing Vargas as good on draws and having excellent passing ability. They chide the need for quicker footwork, aggressiveness and needing to shoot more but allow that he possesses very good hockey sense.

According to the latest statistics, Brennan Vargas, has played in 42 games for the USNTDP U-18 team with 5 goals and 9 assists. One of the first things that I noticed is his 26 penalty minutes. Few of his teammates come anywhere close to this low number that speaks of smart play. Add this up with the fact that 2 of his 5 goals are game-winning goals and a picture of an extremely valuable player begins to form.

Nice to see that you're considering our 'Cats! Wildcat Nation wishes you much luck if you find your way here in New Hampshire!

Go 'Cats!
