Key Statistics: Bouchard
was Union's leading scorer last season with 17 goals
and 29 points in 36 games. He took over the scoring
reign from Jordan Webb, who held that title for three
years. Bouchard has increased his scoring total each
season he's been on campus, up from 18 points as a freshman
and 24 points as a sophomore.
What He Does: Bouchard has been a consistent
point producer in his first three seasons for Union,
and he can score from anywhere in the offensive zone.
His perimeter shot is a strength, but he will also go
to the front of the net.
The Bigger Picture: Union's scoring
depth should be a team strength in the upcoming season
especially with sophomores T.J. Fox and Josh Coyle returning
to the lineup after serving suspensions. That means
that Bouchard won't have to carry the scoring load for
the Dutchmen and other teams won't be able to focus
on him. Plus, Bouchard is a pre-med major and has already
completed most of his most difficult courses. Some hockey
and classroom burdens have been lifted, and Bouchard
may respond with a breakout season.

our league that can score from outside the circles with
