Senior forward Tommy Schutt has signed an amateur tryout agreement with the Manchester Monarchs of the ECHL as was announced by the organization in a press release. Schutt, an associate captain this past season for the Bobcats had the best season of his four year career with 14 points (6 goals 8 assists) in 40 games played. In four years with Quinnipiac, Schutt played in 158 games and scoring 41 points (18 goals and 23 assists). Schutt does a lot of the little things that Rand Pecknold stresses in his players like winning face-offs and blocking shots and that is something that he excelled at during his time at Quinnipiac. He was 6th on the team with 36 blocked shots which was 3rd among Quinnipiac forwards.

A native of Chanhassen, Minnnesota, Schutt came to Quinnipiac by way of the Lincoln Stars (USHL) where he played two seasons. He played in the NCAA tournament in three of his four seasons with Quinnipiac and was part of two ECAC regular season championships (2015, 2016), one ECAC tournament championship (2016) and was part of the Quinnipiac team that was the 2016 National Runner-Up. He was also part of a senior class that won 102 games, which stood third behind North Dakota's 109 wins and Denver's 105 wins. Congrats to Tommy on this great accomplishment and the BobcatsHockeyBlog wishes you nothing but success in your career.
