By April 3, 2019 Other News

Falcon junior forward Lukas Craggs will become the second Falcon to leave school early. Craggs signed a free agent contract with the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League. The rumored signing was corroborated by Elliotte Friedman and confirmed by Falcons’ assistant coach Ty Eigner.

Craggs, a 6′, 190-pound bruiser from Elmhurst, IL led the NCAA in both penalty minutes (120) and penalty minutes per game (3.43). Craggs led all Falcons with five game-winning goals this season but did serve two one-game NCAA suspensions due to accumulations of game misconduct penalties.

Craggs joins Ryan Bednard as an early departure from the Falcon hockey team.

Craggs leaves Bowling Green with a scoring line of 30-24–54 in 116 games played. His entry-level contract is for two years and he’s expected to finish the rest of this season with the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL on an amateur try-out (ATO).
