Last week, things were much different for Trevor Mingoia. Last week Trevor was a college hockey players wondering about his future. Today, Trevor is a professional hockey player, playing the game he loves for a paycheck.

 

Trevor Mingoia’s college hockey career came to an abrupt end recently when his Providence College Friars lost a double overtime game to the University of Minnesota – Duluth in the first round of the NCAA Hockey Tournament. Entering the 16 team tournament as a #1 seed, and with a 27 – 5 – 4 record, most people expected the defending National Champion Friars to be a lock to make the College Hockey Frozen Four. Unfortunately for Trevor Mingoia and his Providence College teammates, their 2015 – 2016 season would end early.

 

 

Mingoia, a 5-foot-11 190lb forward from Fairport, NY spent the 2010 – 2011 season as the Captain of the Berkshire School prep hockey team before accepting a scholarship to Union College. Following his freshman season at Union, his Head Coach Nate Leaman left for the head coaching job at Providence College. Trevor decided to follow Coach Leaman – the coach who recruited him – to Providence but was forced to sit out a year under the NCAA transfer rules. Mingoia spent the following season with the Tri-City Storm of the USHL, tallying 13 goals and 26 assists for 39 points over 43 games.

 

After joining Coach Leaman and the Friars after his time in the USHL, Mingioa immediately became an impact player. During his 3 years at Providence, Mingoia was one of the Friars best players, finishing his career with 34 goals & 49 assists for 82 points over a 3 year career.
