The Quad City Mallards have acquired defenseman Willie Raskob from the Worcester Railers in exchange for cash considerations, the Mallards announced today.
Raskob, 22, picked up an assist while making his professional debut last Saturday night in the Railers’ season opening 4-3 victory over the Manchester Monarchs.
Raskob last season scored four goals and added 13 assists for 17 points in 41 games while helping the University of Minnesota-Duluth reach the NCAA title game. The 5-foot-9, 190-pound Hastings, Minnesota, native was named to the 2017 NCAA West Regional All-Tournament Team.
Raskob scored ten goals and picked up 49 assists in 148 career collegiate games. Raskob and the Bulldogs reached the NCAA tournament each of the last three years. He was named to the National Collegiate Hockey Conference All-Academic Team each of his four seasons at UMD.
