Allen Park native on to Bentley College

Toledo IceDiggers' leading scorer, Paul Scalici, has left the IceDiggers. The 19-year-old joined Bentley College of the Atlantic Hockey conference at the beginning of the current semester.

Scalici, an Allen Park native, was in his second season in the North American Hockey League with the IceDiggers. Last season, he posted 16 goals and 16 assists in 32 games. This season, Scalici was leading Toledo in scoring at the holiday break with ten goals and 19 assists in 27 games.

Scalici, Toledo's captain, will have three and one-half years of eligibility with Bentley, located in Waltham, Mass.

"We are extremely proud of Paul," Toledo head coach and general manager Mike Mankowski said. "He is a tremendous offensive player deserving of this opportunity. He will be missed".

This brings the total number of IceDiggers players moved on to professional or varsity college hockey to over 20 in its four-year existence.
