HANOVER, N.H. – Six members of the 2014-15 Dartmouth men’s hockey team attended National Hockey League (NHL) Development camps during July, showcasing their talents to a half dozen franchises.
Rising seniors Eric Neiley, Brandon McNally and Rick Pinkston as well as returning fifth-year senior Eric Robinson, rising sophomore Grant Opperman and incoming freshman River Rymsha all attended camps this past month as non-drafted free-agent invites.
The six players hope to eventually continue the recent trend of success the Big Green have had in sending players to the professional ranks. In 2013-14, no other ECAC Hockey program had more players suit up for NHL teams than Dartmouth’s seven.
