Oswego State has a new addition to its men's hockey program. Defenseman Tim Carr has transferred to SUNY Oswego from Division I's UMass Lowell.
Academically, Carr is a sophomore. He has yet to pay in a collegiate game as he redshirted for the River Hawks last season and didn't crack their lineup this year. He will be eligible to play three more years after the conclusion of the 2009-10 season.
Carr told me last night that he plans to remain at Oswego State for the rest of his collegiate career. He also said that he is still familiarizing himself with the Lakers' system before he takes the ice.
