For the second time in three days, a Union College men’s hockey player has entered the NCAA transfer portal.
Junior defenseman Dylan Anhorn put his name in the portal on Friday. Union interim head coach John Ronan confirmed it, but declined to comment.
On Wednesday, freshman forward Collin Graf entered the portal.
Anhorn was the Dutchmen’s fourth-leading scorer with seven goals and 13 assists in 29 games. He had a two-goal game in a 7-3 win at Princeton on Feb. 5. Six days later, he had a goal and two assists in a 6-4 loss to Colgate. Anhorn finished the season with a six-game point-scoring streak.
Besides Anhorn and Graf, goalie Garrett Nieto and forward Gleb Murtazin are in the transfer portal. Senior defenseman Brandon Estes had entered the portal, but pulled out of it when he signed a professional tryout contract with the AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners.
The Union athletic department conducted interviews this week in its search for its next permanent men’s hockey head coach.
