Former Bears captain and Ivy League Player of the Year Harry Zolnierczyk ’11 scored his first career NHL goal in his first NHL game last night. Zolnierczyk (or Harry Z, as he’s come to be known in Philly) was recalled by the Philadelphia Flyers the night before, and in his first ice time as an NHL-er, put the icing on the cake of a Philadelphia rout over the Ottowa Senators with a sweet backhander late in the third period.
After joining the organization in March, Zolnierczyk has impressed and is making a strong case for a full time spot on the Flyers’ roster in the 2011-12 season. Keep an eye out for Harry, along with Vancouver Canuck Aaron Volpatti ’10, as these former Bears look to make Brunonia proud in the NHL.
