Graduate forward Ryan Mahshie has left UConn men’s hockey for personal reasons, the team confirmed to the UConn Hockey Hub on Wednesday.
Mahshie, who transferred in from RPI over the offseason, played in 22 of 23 games thus far but saw this role decline this past weekend vs. UNH. On Friday, he dropped to the extra skater spot, and on Sunday he was a healthy scratch.
After putting up 15 goals in 31 games with the Engineers last season, Mahshie struggled to replicate that production in Storrs. He had two goals and three assists while only recording one point over his last 10 games.
This is the second year in a row that a transfer has departed UConn mid-season. In January 2023, forward Adam Dawe left the Huskies to sign with the ECHL’s Newfoundland Growlers. A transfer from Maine, Dawe managed just one goal in 16 games with UConn.
With Mahshie gone, the Huskies will likely look to Jake Veilleux, Jake Black, and Oliver Flynn to fill his spot in the lineup. UConn’s next game is on Friday at 4 p.m. ET against Sacred Heart in the first round of the CT Ice Tournament.
