California native joins Miner roster.

Join us in welcoming the newest addition to the Miners Hockey Club roster, freshman Kevin Duncan from Los Angeles, California.
 
Head Coach Tom Herman on the addition of Duncan to the Miner roster, “Kevin is a defenseman who has a lot of offensive potential.  He’s coming off a great junior hockey career and he’ll step in and make an immediate impact.  Although he’s a smaller defenseman, he makes up for it with his speed, skill, and hockey smarts. Even as a freshman, I expect him to be a leader inside the classroom and on the ice.”
