Days after his team was knocked out of the NCAA tournament by B.U. on the Worcester Railers’ home ice, the team announced Tuesday that Dwyer Tschantz ’18 will join the Railers for the rest of the season.

Tschantz, a seventh-round draft pick of the St. Louis Blues in 2014, will join the Railers — a New York Islanders affiliate — after a senior season in which he appeared in 12 games and recorded three assists.

In signing a professional deal, Tschantz joins his former teammates Jeff Kubiak ’17 and Mitch Gillam ’17, who are both current players for the Railers. Tschantz is the first member of the class of 2018 to ink a pro deal.

Over the course of his college career, the Wilmington, Delaware, native was in and out of the lineup, sitting due to injuries at the beginning of his freshman and sophomore seasons, and was a healthy scratch for much of his final two years.
