Catching up with Jack Dugan ‘17

What have you been doing since you have graduated Northwood?

I have been playing hockey in the USHL for the Chicago Steel. [Ed. note: Jack’s being modest: he was also drafted by the Vegas Golden Knights of the NHL and represented the United States in the World Junior A Challenge in December]

How does the hockey compare to Northwood last year?

It is a step up, but I was able to adjust quickly. The puck moves faster, and every team in the league is deep, making a 60 game schedule a bit more of a grind compared to Northwood’s 50 games a year.

What is the living situation like?

I lived with a billet family, which was located about 20 minutes away from the rink, so it’s not that bad of a drive. Being at Northwood made me more independent, which has helped me be on my own this year. Living with a billet family is different from living with a whole hall of students, but I adjusted well and don’t mind the change.

What do you miss most about Northwood

I miss being with and living with my friends every day. The coaching at Northwood is second to none, and Coach Cassidy has done an incredible job with the program. It’s only going to get better. The future is bright for Northwood hockey and the whole Northwood community.

What are your plans for next year?

I will attend Providence College this fall.
