After serving as a defenseman for Boston University for three seasons, redshirt junior Shane Switzer’s career as a Terrier has come to an end.
The Bloomfield Hills, Michigan native skated in six games as a freshman, earning a career-best plus/minus of +1. Switzer came up with his most productive season in 2016-17, notching a career-high three goals, as well as one assist to match the assist tallied in 2015-16.
In 2016-17, Switzer was named a one-time Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week and member of the 2017 Hockey East All-Academic Team, but did not appear in 2017-18. The blueliner returned as a redshirt junior for the 2018-19 season, making a career-high 17 appearances.
After joining BU from the Lloydminster Bobcats of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, Switzer now concludes his collegiate career with three goals and two assists in 31 games.
During Switzer’s time at BU, the Terriers won a Hockey East championship and made three appearances in the national tournament.
