Q & A With Incoming Bulldogs: Carson Soucy

As summer winds down and hockey season draws near, fans get more excited for the first puck of the season to drop.  This year, the Pups look to venture farther into post-season play and earn a spot in the NCAA tourney once again.

Building on last year's season to accomplish this year's goals will take a tremendous amount of hard work and a crop of very talented freshmen.  Bulldog Country got the opportunity to play a little "Q and A" with the incoming freshmen and will be sharing what the players had to say over the next few weeks.

The second Bulldog in our Q & A segment is a little bit farther away from home.  Carson Soucy, a Irma, Alberta native, was drafted in the 5th round (137th overall) by the Minnesota Wild this summer and will join the Dogs in hopes of tuning his talent and skill to a point where he can pull over the Minnesota Wild sweater.

Known as a physical defensman, Soucy is able to use his large frame to win battles along the boards and exhibit an intimidation factor to skaters who play less physical.

Bulldog fans, meet Carson Soucy, #4 freshman for the University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs.
