Goaltender Evan McCarthy(29) is back in between the pipes for a second season with Walpole Express of the Eastern Hockey League juniors, but for 2015/2016 he’s committed to Miami University (Ohio), where he’ll also grab himself a nice education.
The fairly big 6’3″ 180 lbs. net minder has yet to post outstanding numbers through a pair of years in US junior hockey (he played for a pair of NAHL teams as a rookie) but that all looks to change since he decided on his future intentions.
He’s already off to a quick start posting a 4-0-2 record with a 2.50 GAA and .938 SV% (all bests) and will likely blow right past his minutes played before the midpoint of the season.
He’ll be 21-years old when he starts his college career but that’s fairly typical in a goalie’s development.
