Report: Penn State Men’s Hockey’s Connor McMenamin Transfers To Minnesota Duluth

Former Penn State men’s hockey star Connor McMenamin has reportedly found a new home.

The forward is heading to Minnesota Duluth for his fifth season of collegiate hockey, according to the Duluth News Tribune’s Matt Wellens. Just a week ago, the Grand Forks Herald’s Brad Elliott Schlossman reported McMenamin’s entrance into the portal.

McMenamin spent the past four years in Happy Valley, serving as a cornerstone for Guy Gadowsky’s team. The Collegeville, Pennsylvania, native was an alternate captain this past season and totaled 24 points, including 15 assists.

If this is the end of McMenamin’s Nittany Lion career, he leaves Penn State as a two-time alternate captain who scored 66 points during his tenure. If McMenamin had stayed at Penn State, he without question would’ve been a leading candidate to take over as the Nittany Lions’ captain following Paul DeNaples’ departure.

He now reportedly joins a Minnesota Duluth team that finished the 2022-23 season 16-20-1, including a 10-14 record within the conference.
