Redshirt senior Dajon Mingo has left the Bowling Green program to pursue a career in professional hockey, Falcon coach Chris Bergeron announced Friday.

The undrafted free agent most likely will sign an East Coast Hockey League contract.

“We wish Dajon the best of luck in the future,” Bergeron said in a statement. “We appreciate his effort in contributing to the development of our program.”

Mingo, who played both forward and defense, totaled 12 goals and 32 assists in 107 games. He was a defenseman this season.

The 5-foot-9, 172-pounder played in just nine of BG’s 19 games this season, totaling one assist, three minor penalties for six minutes and an on ice-rating of +1. He was a healthy scratch for the last seven games and didn’t make the trip to last weekend’s series at Bemidji State.

Updated (12/19/15): Mingo has signed with the Toledo Walleye of the ECHL.
