My Story on Michael St. Denis commitment to Army
With the end of the Flin Flon Bomber season comes the graduation of this year’s 20 year old crop. Four players played their last game in the Maroon and White when the team was swept by the La Ronge Ice Wolves in the Bauer Conference Survivor Series.
Of those four, American born defenseman James McNulty (May 2, 1991 – Fenton, MI) has already received an NCAA scholarship, committing to Army at the beginning of the season.
McNulty suited up in 59 SJHL games, all with Flin Flon, amassing 17 points (5g, 12a) and 161 minutes in penalties. While being a solid player in his own zone, the Bombers found success on the power play when he was put up forward using his big 6’4, 205 pound frame in front of the net.
“James has had a goal and we’re happy that he’s been able to fulfill it,” said Head Coach and General Manager Mike Reagan. “It shows that his hard work and determination has paid off. He’ll fit in very nicely with Army.”
McNulty was taken in the 2011 USHL draft by the Fargo Force after the 2010-11 season with the Bombers and found himself on the opening day roster. But with four other Division I committed defensemen on the Force roster; McNulty was soon back patrolling the blue line for the Bombers.
Along with McNulty, the Bombers see forwards Jay Young and Jesse Mysiorek and captain David Roper all graduate from junior hockey.
