Report: Penn State Men’s Hockey Forward Ryan Kirwan Enters Transfer Portal

Penn State men’s hockey may be on the verge of losing a significant piece.

According to a report from Grand Forks Herald college hockey reporter Brad Elliott Schlossman, Nittany Lion forward Ryan Kirwan has entered the transfer portal.

Last season, Kirwan’s 13 goals were the second-most on the team, his 13 assists were sixth, and his 26 points were fourth-most. The junior from DeWitt, New York, has 34 goals and 35 assists for 69 points over his three-year career.

Kirwan’s departure would be another serious loss amid numerous potential departures from the program. Liam Souliere, Dylan Gratton, Chase McLane, and Tyler Paquette have all reportedly entered the transfer portal, also according to the Grand Forks Herald.

So far, Penn State has landed former UConn goaltender Arsenii Sergeev, who could be Souliere’s replacement. With now three forwards reportedly in the transfer portal and several veterans graduating, it’s difficult to envision what the depth chart will look come the 2024-25 season, but the likes of Danny Dzhaniyev, Dylan Lugris, and Ben Schoen could see more ice time.
