Travis has had an outstanding collegiate career, including a National Championship and we are excited to help him take the next step in his hockey development, GM Doug Wilson said in a release. Head Coach Scott Sandelin and his staff at Minnesota-Duluth have done a terrific job creating a winning environment at UMD and we think Travis will benefit greatly from that experience moving forward.
