Dallas Stars prospect Gavin Bayreuther, a former St. Lawrence University standout, wore the ‘C’ for the Dallas Stars at the 2017 Traverse City Prospects Tournament. New York Hockey Journal caught up with Bayreuther at the high-profile Michigan showcase.
New York Hockey Journal: Why did you stay at St. Lawrence for a fourth year?
Gavin Bayreuther: We didn’t know Mark, Coach Morris, would be the coach until really that last week or two at school; it was kind of a mystery. The older guys had to step up and be leaders that spring. It was a really good experience, a leadership opportunity, I learned a lot. The school gave me so much during those three years, why not stay, why not get that education. Education is so important, and my family, especially — my parents are teachers at Cardigan Mountain School — it’s always really important. When Coach Morris came in, it worked out really well, and I was happy to stay.
