Northeastern, Senior D Cockerill, Part Ways
CHN Staff Report
Northeastern announced Saturday that senior defenseman Garret Cockerill, a key member of the Huskies' backline the last four seasons, is "no longer a member of the team."
There were no additional details announced on the reason for Cockerill's departure.
"I would like to thank Garret for his hard work with our program for the past three-plus seasons,” Northeastern coach Jim Madigan said. “We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
This season, Cockerill had played 13 of the team's 16 games, and is currently third on the team in scoring with 15 points. He has two assists in each of Northeastern's last three games, all wins. Cockerill, 23, appeared in 122 career games during three-plus seasons at Northeastern, recording 19 goals and 65 assists. He also blocked 198 shots, and was a member of the Huskies’ 2016 Hockey East championship team.
In addition, the team said junior forward Liam Pecararo will not attend Northeastern during the Spring 2018 semester and plans to reenroll in the Fall of 2018.
Pecoraro appeared in 25 games as a freshman for Maine in 2014-15. He transferred to Northeastern, but hasn't seen any playing time since.
