Dominick Procopio is moving to Massachusetts when he’s done in Louisiana.
The Grosse Pointe native and Shreveport Mudbugs (NAHL) defenseman has committed to UMass-Lowell for the upcoming 2018-19 season.
“When I had the opportunity to go to UMass-Lowell it was an easy decision,” Procopio told MiHockey. “It is a prestigious hockey program, with a great staff. It is place that I believe I will fit in well and have a great opportunity to develop as a player.”
Procopio is a product of Victory Honda and Compuware. He is in the midst of his third season in the NAHL; in 2015-16, he played for the Brookings Blizzard and since 2016 he has been skating for the Mudbugs.
He said he can’t wait to join the RiverHawks and compete in Hockey East.
“I’m very excited to be playing college hockey,” Procopio said. “It has been a dream of mine since I started playing hockey. I’m very excited for the future. I want to thank my family, teammates, coaches, and everyone who has helped me develop and get to this point in my career.”
