Zwicky was among Bentley's leaders in goals (10)
and points (20) last season.
Key Statistics: The 23-year-old
senior has had an abbreviated college career. He played
13 games for Clarkson in 2002-03, producing a goal and
five assists. He left school and played for the Brockville
Braves of the CJHL in 2003-04, tallying 14 goals and
20 assists, making him a point-per-game player. Zwicky
had to sit out a year at Bentley per transfer rules.
Last season he was third on the team in goals scored
(10) and fourth in scoring (20 points). He had three
power play goals, three game-winners and one game-tying
tally. He ranked in the league’s top 20 for penalty
infractions (24) and minutes (67).
What He Does: Zwicky
is a fluid skater, a playmaker and has one of the most
accurate shots in the league, say the coaches in Atlantic
Hockey. His knowledge of the game makes him an asset
on Bentley’s power play and penalty killing units,
and he does not force plays.
The Bigger Picture: Zwicky
was moved to Bentley’s top line late last season
with Anthony Canzoneri and Dain Prewitt and is expected
to start there again. Soderquist envisions Zwicky being
a 30-point scorer. His team-first beliefs should benefit
him as team captain this season. A fourth-year grad
student, Zwicky speaks English, German and French, which
should help him out should he pursue a pro career in
his native Switzerland.
Bentley head coach Ryan Soderquist
on Zwicky: “Marc has brought a lot of
consistency in terms of being a two-way player and also
having a pretty high level of skill. He can make any
line better. I think this will definitely be a breakout
year for him.’’
