Drew Bagnall
St. Lawrence
So. | D | Oakbank, Manitoba

One of the top rookie defensemen in the ECAC last season, St. Lawrence's Drew Bagnall totaled five goals and 13 assists in 40 games in 2003-04.


Key Statistics: Bagnall played in 40 games last season and had five
goals and 13 assists for 18 points. He had a +2 plus-minus rating.

What He Does: He plays. A lot. As a freshman he was one of the most
reliable defensemen for the Saints and was among the team's leaders
in ice time. The graduation of stalwart defenseman Ryan Glenn means
that Bagnall's work on the blueline will be even more important this

The Bigger Picture: Bagnall's on-ice contributions are noteworthy but
folks around the St. Lawrence program love his off-ice qualities as well. He's a quiet leader and a smart kid. Bagnall won the university's Freshman Scholar-Athlete award, which encompasses all varsity sports. His grade-point average was higher than even those nerdy swimmers and runners.

Clarkson coach George Roll on Bagnall: “We don't get to see him a whole lot but he had an unbelievable year. I was extremely impressed with his all-around game. He's very good offensively and in his own end. For a freshman to step in and play that well is a tribute to St. Lawrence's recruiting. This kid is going to be a star in our league for the next three years."
